Lunches Getting A New Look At The Allen School
The Allen School is in the process of revamping its school menu to incorporate healthier food choices. The idea behind the shift is that foods served in school should promote the health of all children. Exposing children to new tastes and textures when their tastes are still developing is also a goal of the move. Highly processed foods will slowly be taken out of the menu. Changes will be implemented gradually to give children an opportunity to become accustomed to the new menu items. The project has already seen success with foods such as spaghetti sauce with pureed vegetables, whole grain breading that include flax seed and leaner meat options like turkey. Artificial ingredients are also being targeted in the menu redesign. Parents can see the changes in the menu, posted here each month.
