Resources for Schools
We know we can play an important role as nutrition educators — particularly for children, their parents and other caregivers. After all, we have a long history of proactively encouraging health and fitness.
Recent School-based Initiatives
In the U.S., we offer a variety of support for schools, including providing foods that meet the USDA school meal regulations for nutrition; supporting school nutrition professionals with relevant tools, programs, and education; and being members of the School Nutrition Association. For more information, visit KelloggsSpecialtyChannels.com. A consumer, parents, and kid facing website, MenuExplorers.com, aims to inspire students to explore exciting flavors and interesting facts about the ingredients that make their school food great.
In the United Kingdom, we brought together a group of external, independent nutrition experts and education specialists to collate food and nutrition guidelines for school breakfast clubs. These guidelines were collated on the basis of the school food legislation, originally compiled by the School Food Trust, and were developed especially for breakfast in the absence of any other breakfast-specific guidance. Kellogg’s UK funded the meetings of the experts, the collation and editing, and the publication and dissemination of the guidelines to school food providers. The guidelines can be found online and are available in hard copy from our local customer services.
