Attendees Invited to Visit Booth 1458 for Egg-focused Menu Ideas and to Meet New Eggy Character

CHICAGO (June 5, 2019) — The American Egg Board (AEB) will be exhibiting at the 2019 School Nutrition Association Annual National Conference (ANC) in St. Louis, Missouri, July 14-16. Booth 1458 will feature five egg-focused, student-approved recipes and debut a new Eggy character: STEM Shelly.

At ANC, the AEB will be debuting the latest 5 Days / 5 Ways® menu – Asian Bowls, featuring the high-quality protein of eggs. These five school-tested, kid-approved Asian Bowl recipes were gathered from real nutrition programs around the country to serve as inspiration for increasing meal participation.

“Menu fatigue is a reality many school nutrition directors face, and we believe the antidote is sharing ideas that really work and students love,” said Maribel Alchin, M.B.A., R.D.N., L.D.N., manager of school and college marketing in market development at the AEB. “We’ve gathered eggcellent recipes from real school nutrition programs that we cannot wait to share with ANC attendees, as well as hear directly from them what is working in their school district.”

Beyond featuring student-approved recipes at the show, the AEB plans to debut a new Eggy character, STEM Shelly, to inspire students to take science, technology, engineering and math studies seriously.

“Meet us and Shelly in St. Louis,” said Alchin. “We’re proud to add our first female Eggy character to show little girls (and boys) there are no boundaries for your career path if you study hard.”
