Episode 87 – A Dive into School Nutrition with Maggie Maggio, MPH, RD

The Nation School Lunch and Breakfast Programs provide nutrition to over 30 million US kids…and that was pre-pandemic. Did you know that most children consume as much as half of their daily calories at school? COVID-19 has changed regulations for the NSLP and we welcomed Dietitians Dish listener and fellow dietitian, Maggie Maggio, MPH, RD onto the show to chat more! Join us to learn a ton about the NSLP — the ins and outs, plus what kids REALLY love to eat — from a dietitian working in Minnesota school nutrition. We learned a ton and bet you will, too!
