The notion of comfortable cafeterias was first promoted by the Montana Team Nutrition Network. Comfortable Cafeterias have three main goals: improve learning, behavior and student health. Some best practices for ensuring a comfortable and pleasant environment for students to eat is 1) a Recess Before Lunch schedule, 2) adequate time to eat and 3)a school philosophy regarding mealtime.
The following on demand webinar entitled: “Comfortable Cafeterias” covers the above topic in greater detail with Dayle Hayes, MS. RD. giving guidance and implementation specifics. Dayle Hayes is an award-winning author, educator and nutrition coach. In her writing and presentations, she brings a delightful blend of practicality and pizzazz to everyday nutrition advice.
