I LOVE the Daily Scoop! Each morning one of my students gets to read the message for that day on "good nutrition news." It's an important beginning to each day. Leslie Engel, Elementary Teacher, Oceanside, CA

The monthly recipes (in English and Spanish) are a great tool to extend this information out to families, and link what the students hear at school with what they taste at home!  Deirdre Kleske, Co-Chair, Schools & After-School Domain, SD County Childhood Obesity Initiative​​

​​The Daily Scoop has been a fantastic resource for our nutrition education programs across the district.  It easily fits into our Harvest of the Month program, and gives teachers another avenue to connect students with nutrition information.  I love how the tips include a cultural and environmental perspective in addition to the more science-based nutrition tips.  Amy Haessly, Nutrition & Education Specialist, Vista USD
