School breakfast is an important part of the success of your program – and students. Learning to harness hot trends like plant-based eating, while managing common food allergens like peanuts can be daunting for menu planners. We believe that with appropriate planning, school nutrition programs can serve peanut foods even if there are individuals with peanut allergies in your schools! Learn how, and receive valuable tools to help with marketing, crediting, and managing allergens.

Speakers include nationally recognized school nutrition expert, Director of the School Nutrition Program in Burke County, GA and Past-President of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Donna Martin - as well as registered dietitian, nutritionist and food allergy expert, Sherry Coleman Collins.

Successful completion of the webinar and quiz is awarded 1 SNA CEU or 1 CPEU for RDNs/NDTRs.

  1. Explain food trends and opportunities for their inclusion in school breakfast.
  2. Utilize the facts about managing food allergens in their school breakfast programs, whether traditional service, breakfast in the classroom or grab-and-go.
  3. Use tools and resources provided in the presentation to elevate their program through training and menu planning.
