New menu items are being introduced while the standards for healthy meals are being enforced. We aim to provide choices that not only fit into new healthy guidelines, but look appetizing and taste as good as they look! We want students to be a part of the menu planning process since they are the ones whose opinions really matters! Most recently, we have invited students at Westwood K-5 to sample a variety of new products. The three items the students tried were Squeezable Fruit Pop: Strawberry, Power Snack: Turkey Stick, and a new lower-sodium cheddar cheese sauce. Here are the results! Does your child want to participate in a taste test? Contact the district’s Registered Dietitian, Elizabeth Henry at 412-488-3309, email@example.com.
