Healthy High School Challenge

Overview

The Healthy High School National Challenge is an exciting event designed to reinforce the importance of making healthy food choices to our students, while building ongoing excitements around your foodservice program. High school programs managed by Sodexo around the country will try to out-perform each other by earning points for served balanced plate meals and healthy a la carte snacks and beverages. The more meals, healthy snacks and beverages a school serves, the more points it will earn towards winning the challenge and the Top Prize of $5,000.

Objectives

To further the nutrition education of high school students through a national challenge that plays off of their competitive spirit by encouraging them to make healthy food choices in order to earn points for their school. 

Timing

The Healthy High School Challenge takes place during the month of October, 2017.

Display Tasting


Seasonal Display Tasting gives students the opportunity to learn about and taste various seasonal produce. The Child Nutrition Catering and Nutrition Educator teams come to a junior high or high school site during the fall and spring. A cooking/prepping demonstration is given about the recipe prepared, with recipe cards available for the students. The students will have the option to sample the prepared recipe from the display tasting station.

 


 

Picnics

The Child Nutrition Catering team comes to elementary and/or secondary sites and cook up hamburgers or hotdogs on TPS's very own smoker trailer for a sack lunch style meal for the students. The students pick up their sack lunches, and head outside to enjoy music and sun.
