K12Foodies Episode 30: School Food Trends with Chef Sharon Schaefer, SNS


Our guest is one of our favorite K12Foodies, Sharon Schaefer, SNS. Sharon is a chef, speaker and educator, so if you’ve been to a national or state School Nutrition Association event in the past few years, you may have even attended one of her sessions or classes.

Sharon travels across the country visiting school districts and training child nutrition professionals, so she has seen the latest menu trends in child nutrition. She joins us today for part one of a two part series on the Top School Nutrition Menu Trends.

We’re all about collaboration at K12Foodies, so we are especially excited Sharon could share what’s happening in child nutrition across the country. We hope episodes like this inspire you to try some of these trends in your own cafeterias!
