December's superfood is chilis! These spicy peppers have the superpower of pain suppression, to relieve headaches and sore muscles. The capsaicin is what makes the peppers both spicy and pain relieving.
Our Tastings program made to offer samples of nutritious foods in enticing ways. As we know, healthy eating is about balance and variety. While many children are interested in different kinds of foods and are willing to try new things, others are often averse to trying new foods. Ongoing encouragement to try a small amount of a new, healthy food or dish is key in acceptance –and enjoyment! –of this food. It can then be incorporated into the menu soon after the tasting and on an ongoing basis for students.
