NEW YORK, Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- KIWI magazine invites parents to celebrate what's great about school lunch—and learn how we can all work together to make it even better. National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day takes place on October 16, 2013, during School Lunch week, and is supported by the School Nutrition Association and co-sponsored by Rudi's Organic Bakery, Rudi's Gluten-Free Bakery, and the Whole Kids Foundation.
National Take Your Parents to Lunch Day is a grassroots effort to bring families together with schools to share a lunchtime meal. It's a day for parents across the country to visit their children's schools and have lunch with them in the cafeteria—and is a great way to learn more about what goes into putting together a healthy lunch.
For schools, this event is an opportunity to showcase their nutritious meals and provide parents with more information about lunchtime—from what goes into getting a healthy meal on a child's tray, to what the day-to-day lunch experience is like, to what new initiatives, plans, or updates have been made to the menu.
Participants can also enter to win a $1,000 grant from the Whole Kids Foundation to help improve their school's lunch program. Visit myhealthyschool.com for full rules and to fill out an entry form.
