March's superfood is whole grains! These complex carbohydrates have the superpower of endurance, they can boost and sustain your energy to the max! Brown Rice, Oats, and Barley are great ways to harness this power.
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.
