This episode celebrates National School Lunch Week starting October 15! Celeste Finney, the Nutrition Program Coordinator for Lafayette Parish Schools and dietitian joins us in the studio to discuss the science behind your kids’ school lunch meals. At the beginning of her career, she worked in the school systems in Texas right after Hurricane Rita hit. She then moved back to Louisiana after several years and began working in diabetes education which landed her the current position now. It was so interesting to sit down and hear how complex, unique, and regulated schools’ lunch are to fulfill kids’ nutritional and calorie needs based on their grade level.
