For those of you who missed the Nourish Myself…Thyme for Me webinar with Dayle Hayes and Chef Brenda Wattles, you can still watch the recording, earn a Certificate of Completion and receive a three-pocket apron as seen worn by Dayle and Brenda on the video (while supplies last). The attendees’ evaluations showed people enjoyed the demonstrations and felt appreciated. Questions? Contact Crista email@example.com
In case you have not seen it, there is a wonderful video by Dr. Bob Murray promoting school meals on the SNA website: www.schoolnutrition.org/PEDIATRICIAN The three accompanying handouts are available on SNA:

- School Breakfast Matters: Highlights the importance of breakfast and the tie to academic performance & brain function
- School Nutrition is a Crucial Component of the Whole Child Approach to Education: Connecting school meals to the whole child approach
The video is about 15 minutes long with lots of good data and slides. It may be something to show to School Boards, administrators, wellness teams, staff, PTO/PTA, Back to School events, etc.
