Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - “You Are the Stars of Child Nutrition!” is the theme for the Washington School Nutrition Association’s annual state conference. The theme emphasizes the fact that, just like principals and teachers, by doing what they do every day, the 2300+ individual members of WSNA play an important role in student learning.

Headquartered at the Doubletree Hotel - Spokane City Center, WSNA’s conference will be held July 28 – July 30, 2014. Exhibits will be held on Tuesday, July 29th, at the Group Health Exhibit Hall.

WSNA President Chris Neal, Director of Nutrition Services for Highline School District, will preside over a gathering of 500 enthusiastic school nutrition employees dedicated to learning. They will be taking advantage of pre & post-conference training sessions on Nutrition, Food Safety and Financial Management as well as informative workshops covering such topics as, Utilizing Washington Grown Pulse Crops, Marketing, Effective Leadership, Produce Handling, Healthy US Schools Challenge and USDA Meal Regulations, to name a few.

Monday’s First General Session speaker Dr. James Painter, PhD, RD will share his research in controlling mindless eating in his presentation titled “Portion Size Me,” while Tuesday’s Second General Session speaker Bart Christian, will share steps to a better quality of life from his book series, “Simple Solutions” in his presentation “Managing Personal Wellness in a Busy World.” Wednesday’s Third General Session speaker, Zonya Foco, RD, CHFI, CSP, will inspire everyone to make fitness & nutrition exciting, fun and life-changing with “The Power of One Good Habit.”

WSNA members’ community spirit will be showcased through the annual conference blood drive and a collection drive for transitional students at Spokane’s Crosswalk & Spokane Valley’s Teen Closet.
