  • (1888PressRelease) July 07, 2010 - Woodland Hills, CA, Green Edge Systems, a leader in technology solutions for K-12 school food services to present the Epicure Digital K-12 Menu Board System with Nutritional Labeling at the ANC-2010 National School Nutrition Association SNA Exhibition in Dallas, July 12-14 2010, Booth #1449.

    Improving school nutrition and fighting childhood obesity will be the subject matter on everyone's lips as the School Nutrition Association (SNA) meets in Dallas, Tex., beginning July 11.

    Nutritional menu labeling was identified as one of the simplest and most effective ways to fight Childhood Obesity, with immediate proven results.

    The Food Channel will be in Dallas for complete on-the-scene coverage, including daily reports, video interviews, and feature stories.

    Green Edge Systems will have a live display of the Epicure Digital Menu Board System with Nutritional labeling at the show.

    Digital menu boards in K-12 schools communicate with students just when they are selecting their food, at the point of service, while in line in school cafeterias. Digital menu boards are at the battlefront, ready to combat childhood obesity and educate students to make healthier food choices.

    Schools are doing their best to provide healthy food choices in their cafeterias and will do much more in the future, but the success of the fight against Childhood Obesity is in the hands of the students. They must learn how to make healthier choices when selecting their food.

    Nutritional menu labeling by Epicure Digital informs students to make healthier meal choices by displaying nutritional data and icons next to menu items and providing nutritional recommendations and guidelines on multimedia digital menu boards designed for K-12 students.

    Digital menu boards in K-12 are not only expected to lead the fight against childhood obesity, but also increase significantly the participation in school lunch and breakfast programs.

    Educating kids to make healthier choices is much more then just presenting calories - there are healthier calories, calories from fat, calories from sugar, empty calories and more. Digital menu boards help in guiding kids to better understand this and make healthier choices through multimedia information at the point of service.

    If schools educate kids to take full responsibility for their actions, it is the school's responsibility to provide information and guidance to the kids while they are making their food selections.
