BrightBites is a free, non-profit program designed for both elementary and secondary school environments. BrightBites breaks school nutrition down into simple, bite-size challenges — online badges — that can be earned by schools and school leaders. Each badge includes simple steps, free tools, and helpful links. The more badges teams earn, the higher their rank in the BrightBites Hall of Fame. Teams can also share their journey and successes on social media at every stage. It’s a fun, modern way to improve school nutrition.
