MyPlate Nutrition While Breastfeeding!

In honor of National Breastfeeding Awareness Month, we thought it would be a great time to talk about our MyPlate: Nutrition While Breastfeeding Education Cards. When you are breastfeeding, you have special nutritional needs and that’s why this education card is so useful in explaining how to follow the USDA MyPlate plan while breastfeeding.

This card shows different amounts of food to eat each day if you are breastfeeding only or breastfeeding and giving formula. It also offers healthy tips like:

  • Choose more dark g203001reen and orange vegetables.
  • Eat a variety of fruit. Choose fruits that are fresh, frozen or canned in water or juice.
  • Choose whole grains for more energy.
  • Choose lean or low-fat meats and poultry.
  • Choose low-fat or fat-free (skim) dairy foods.

We also offer a variety of additional topics including: Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, Baby Feeding, Child Nutrition, Family Nutrition and General Nutrition.

Visit Learning ZoneXpress  to see all of our resources designed specifically for expecting and breastfeeding moms.

We invite you to share with us on how you’re promoting and supporting breastfeeding during National Breastfeeding Awareness Month and all year long.

Minnesota’s Own Jean Ronnei Named The 2015-2016 President of the School Nutrition Association!

The School Nutrition Association’s 69th Annual National Conference last week in Salt Lake City, Utah marked an exciting time for Minnesota’s own Jean Ronnei! During this year’s conference she was named the 2015-2016 President of the School Nutrition Association.

Ronnei is the Chief Operations Officer at Saint Paul Public Schools right here in Minnesota and now will also represent SNA’s 55,000 school nutrition professional members nationwide.
Our National Sales Director Londa Arnfelt was on-hand to witness this incredible accomplishment. This is what Londa had to say….

I’m so proud to support Jean as she continues in this important national role. I’m confident she will lead SNA with the charisma, professionalism and dedication we’ve long known her to possess through her incredible leadership here in MN. I am excited about what the year will bring with Jean at the helm, enthusiastically taking on this commitment with the vast knowledge she’s gained through her highly regarded career in school nutrition.

Currently Ronnei manages the Transportation, Facilities, Technology Services, Nutrition Services and Security and Emergency Management for Saint Paul Public Schools. Prior to this she served as Director of Nutrition Services.

 
During her 24 years as Director, Ronnei turned the nutrition department into a nationally renowned school meal program, even earning the 2007 Foodservice Achievement Management Excellence (FAME) Golden School Foodservice Director of the Year Award and many other recognitions.

 
Learning ZoneXpress is so very proud of Jean Ronnei’s accomplishment of 2015-2016 President of the School Nutrition Association. Congratulations to a well-deserving individual!

August is National Breastfeeding Awareness Month!

This is an exciting time to celebrate pregnant and breastfeeding mothers. The breastfeeding campaign, funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, hopes to empower women to commit to breastfeeding by highlighting new research showing that babies who are exclusively breastfed for six months are less likely to develop ear infections, diarrhea and respiratory illnesses, and may be less likely to develop childhood obesity.

At Learning ZoneXpress we understand that women have special nutritional needs during pregnancy and when breastfeeding. That’s why we have created a variety of nutrition education materials to help support those needs.


Our high quality education cards, tri-fold brochures, handouts and posters feature a dietary guide based on USDA MyPlate recommendations for expecting and breastfeeding women. These easy-to-read nutrition resources offer information about eating a healthy, balanced diet to help you and your baby stay healthy.

These nutrition education resources work great for the doctor’s office, WIC clinic, or healthcare clinic and can also be customized with your organization’s logo and information.  As an added bonus we are offering FREE SHIPPING with coupon code 150706!*

Visit Learning ZoneXpress today to see how our resources can help you celebrate this month and every month as Breastfeeding Awareness Month!

* Expires 7/31/2015. Not valid with any other offers. May not be applied to previous orders. One-time use only.
