Programs That Generate Excitement and Interest for Healthful Nutrition

Making good, healthful choices is a lesson that's best learned when you make it interesting and fun. That's just what Hiland School Nutrition Services does, with a variety of programs designed specifically for educators and students.

Student Education and Engagement Materials

Hiland Dairy provides a variety of classroom materials that educators can incorporate into lesson plans to teach students about school nutrition and generate excitement about eating at school. Additional resources from MilkPEP and the Hiland Dairy school nutrition specialist provide social media tie-ins to keep parents and students involved.

Make Nutrition Fun

Let Hiland help introduce programs that tie into school activities with information about milk carton gardens and art contest ideas, family cooking classes, a school cookbook, and fun and nutrition-focused events. We have great ideas for open houses, family food and fun nights, student council, cooking clubs, and even a student culinary competition.

Hiland's special Chef in the Classroom program gives students a hands-on feel for what it takes to create their school breakfast and lunch menus. The program can be coordinated with other curriculum, including the healthy body segment, math and science.

Staff Educational Opportunities

Ensure that nutritional staff has the professional training and education they need with professional standards education topics and ServSafe training and certification.

Athletics Recovery Materials

Whether it's building strong muscle and bone to improve student athlete performance or replenishing the body after a workout, Hiland Dairy Athletics Recovery Materials offer athletic trainers and staff additional ways to keep athletes fit and healthy. Using the latest information from the Institute for Child Nutrition and the National Student Athlete Association, these materials are a great way to incorporate nutrition as part of the fitness and training regimen.
