Offer vs. Serve Breakfast Poster (Secondary) – What does yours look like?
The new breakfast regulations mean new menus, and correct cafeteria signage. Help your students understand a reimbursable, complete meal with colorful posters on the food line. Keep in mind the following:
-Visuals are the best way to understanding. Pictures speak volumes.
-Large and in charge. Make sure to put front and center. The larger the poster size the better.
Here is an example of a secondary poster from the Boulder Valley School District.
