New Spring Menu!

By Nicole Spain, Registered Dietitian

Spring is here and with the change of the season comes changes to our menus. Over the month of April, your school will transition to our newly updated Spring-Summer Menu.

This season, we’re featuring Fresh Fruit Fridays!  Every Friday during lunch, your child will be served fresh fruit with their meal, including bananas, apples, oranges, pears, honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon!  All of this fresh, seasonal fruit will benefit our students’ health while supporting our Grow Fit mission.

We’re excited to share that our new menus will include Chicken Burgers along with a returning favorite, mangoes!  Among these menu additions, we’ll also be serving up some fun new recipes including:

  • Aloha Chicken Burger
  • Fresh Cucumber Salad
  • Pizza Chicken Burger
  • King Ranch Chicken Casserole
  • Egg Salad
  • Blueberry Overnight Oats
  • Tropical Overnight Oats
