The nation's largest taste-test of school foods is taking place in Kansas City this week.
Thousands of school nutrition professionals from across the country will sample healthy new school foods and attend education sessions on new regulations, encouraging healthy eating among students.
"I'm looking for delicious healthy items I can serve to my kids for breakfast and lunch," said Jessica Shelly, food services director for Cincinnati Public Schools.
The School Nutrition Association's Annual National Conference will include talks with school nutrition directors and culinary demonstrations for kid-approved recipes.
More than 6,500 school nutrition professionals will be in attendance, including many from the Kansas City area.
