It was a busy day at the Seaport World Trade Center Boston with over 1,500 school nurses in attendance at the 41st annual NASN conference. Our Director of Marketing, Tiffany Gale had the pleasure of walking the exhibiting event and speaking to many of the school nurses.
Here are some highlights from a few of our favorite exhibitors
We spoke to Chris Weiss of FAAN, as one of the nurses visiting their booth said it best,”they are a God send, helping us with our children with food allergies in the school system. I recommend you to all our nurses” Visit www.foodallergy.org for more information.
Get in Touch is a new foundation lead by Mary Ann Wasil Nilan, breast cancer survivor, who’s mission is to empower young girls by educating about what it means to have healthy understanding of their bodies.

We also got a chance to speak to Health Schools Campaign. They are not only changing the future of school food but also the environment of the school with greener cleaning products and supplies. Check them out at www.healthyschoolscampaign.org
Who said it’s not right to play with your food?….I think the people at Foodplay would disagree. This high-energy, Emmy Award winning group of performers entertain and educate at the same time. Eating healthy and being healthy comes alive on stage and is remembered at home for kids of all ages. For more information www.foodplay.com
All and all it was an inspiring day to be with so many amazing people so passionate about children and their future. School nurses are truly the unsung heroes to our children. Food Facts is looking forward to working with the NASN and many of the affiliated companies in the near future. Their work is so important and essential to the nutritional health of our children.
