The United States Department of Agriculture has set forth requirements for Child Nutrition Programs and the National School Lunch Program.  To learn more about these programs and the rights families and students have under these programs, please click on the link below.

USDA Civil Rights Requirements and Child Nutrition Programs

Eating seasonal fruit and vegetables has many benefits, including the best taste and highest nutrition. Some of the fruits and vegetables that are in season in January are Brussels sprouts, jicama, pomegranate, kale, citrus fruits, and leeks.

Try roasting Brussels sprouts and kale for a different, tasty flavor. Jicama can be used whenever you would use a potato (fries, breakfast skillets, chips). Pomegranate can be used in salads, desserts, smoothies, or appetizers. Leeks can be used in soups, paired with potatoes, or used in casseroles for an onion-y, garlic-y flavor.

We are trying new flavors with our Harvest of the Month items this month. Encourage your student to try new things; they may just find a new favorite!

If you have any questions about the Food Service program, please feel free to contact the Food Service Director at:

yvette.steffen AT blairschools DOT org or at 402-427-2960.

 

Thank you for your support,

 

Yvette Steffen, Food Service Director

We all do it ... we make unattainable goals at the start of each New Year only to become quickly discouraged and give up. The trick is to make the goals small and work up to something big. Take baby steps to get to where you want to be. Want to loose weight? Start off small. No one can loose 15 pounds in a short amount of time and still be healthy. One pound a week is best advised at the start of weight loss. Want to go to the gym to be better toned? Starting off lifting massive amounts of weight will only leave you sore for days and will make you want to skip going to the gym ... forever. Again, start small. Smaller weights with more repetitions and small increases will get you to your final goal. Want to eat healthier? Remember that moderation is the best diet. Studies have shown time and again that fad diets are temporary with weight loss. In addition, denying yourself a certain favorite food (such as chocolate) can set yourself up for failure. Add more fruits and vegetables to your diet, eat lean meats, participate in Meatless Monday (eat beans for protein!), and treat yourself to a small treat (a few chocolate chips give you the chocolate you want but with few calories).

Most importantly, don't give up on yourself. There will be a day or two where you forget your goals ... stressful days at work and busy schedules are often the biggest reasons people don't follow through with lifestyle changes. Just pick up where you left off, forgive yourself, and move forward toward your goal!

Happy 2018!
