What a busy few weeks it has been! We have enjoyed serving the students across the District and meeting new friends! Last month we roasted some zucchini and we had many adventurous eaters who tried it. And guess what? A majority of those who tried it for the first time LIKED IT! We are proud of introducing new foods to the students and we hope that they are bringing new dinner ideas home for you.

We had a special breakfast for the middle schoolers ... homemade, custom omelettes! They liked it so much, in fact, we had to bring it back for lunch. The students enjoyed being able to customize their meal and making their own masterpieces. Not to mention that Chef Rodney loved entertaining the students and seeing what omelette combinations the students created! 

We continue to work hard to bring nutritious meals that taste delicious, look good, and contain as little processed food as possible to every student. Good food equals good learning and we want all the students to perfom at their utmost best.

We love to hear feedback from students and their parents; please let me know what you think!

Sometimes adding new flavors to dishes can be difficult if you have a picky eater. But there are a few tricks that can help broaden the taste buds.

The first and probably most effective way of getting acceptance of new flavors is by having your child help in the kitchen. Your child can help with the menu planning, the shopping, the cooking, and the serving. Since the meal is his or her own, your child will be more willing to accept new flavors.

Start small. If your child doesn't like peas, just give a couple, serving it with something that is well liked such as potatoes. Start adding more peas and less potatoes each time you serve it.

Take your time with introducing something new. It takes around ten offers before a child will say "Ok, I'll try it". Don't punish, bribe, or criticize ... just offer and leave it at that.

Invite adventurous tasters to dinner! If your child sees his or her friend eating - and loving! - new foods, your child will be more apt to try it. Peer pressure can be a good thing when it comes to food!
