Happy Summer! We’re getting all of the new and fun programming ready for this upcoming school year and we can’t wait until school is back in session! Make sure to look out for some #FlikSoCHEESY bites and #SuperPOWERFoods upon arriving back to school this Fall! #Tastings will be back this year and we have some more creative #RevvedUp DELISH-dishes to share with you! We hope you are covered in sunscreen and running around enjoying the summer break! Make sure to stay hydrated and start getting ready to jump back into the classroom and into our dining halls!
Healthy Foods Matter focuses this year on grains! Grains come in all shapes, sizes and flavors and our goal is to get everyone to try them all. Each new grain comes with a 'How to Cook' card to make trying them at home easy also!
#FliksoCheesy as this year's Food Focus will have you head over cheese for grilled cheese. Each month we will test your taste buds with a different type of grilled cheese sandwich. August kicks us off with a classic cheddar cheese!
Around the World in 80 Days...ok, so maybe like 180 but we will still hit all the destinations! Starting in London England making stops in Bombay, India, Yokohama, Japan and finally ending in San Francisco, United States be sure to catch the train, ship or hot air balloon to the next food destination.
Superpower Foods are ready to explore all the ways super foods help you shine! From tomatoes in August helping to keep you youthful right through to leafy greens in April making stronger bones, these Superpower foods will give you super "powers"!
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.
