New Cafeteria Posters Help You Understand Healthy Eating!

Promise Academy Cafeteria Posters
If you eat in the Promise Academy Cafeteria, you've probably noticed some new posters greeting you as you enter to get your food. Our Educated Eaters Project is working hard to get everyone at HCZ--children and adults, staff and parents--to understand what motivates the foods that we serve in our cafeteria, and what we mean when we talk about "eating well." We've developed 8 posters about the following ideas:

  • You Are What You Eat
  • How To Eat Well
  • Food Fuels Your Body
  • Food For Thought
  • Eat Local and Think Global
  • End the Obesity Epidemic
  • Eat Well + Be Active = Healthier You
  • Avoid Empty Calories
The posters are colorfully accented with photos of fruits and veggies, but besides being beautiful they all have important messages for our community. We hope you'll take a look at them the next time you come join us for Sloppy Joe's or Braised Ox Tails. In the meantime, we're launching a new series on this blog that will go along with these posters, give you some additional food for thought, and describe some of the science behind statements like "eat well, be well." So, stay tuned!
