School nutrition professionals compete on Chopped!
A special episode of Chopped on the Food Network features four school cafeteria chefs competing to raise awareness about the importance of good meals for kids. The school chefs seek to make a big impression with their first dishes, made with dill pickles and canned tuna. Then in the entrée round, quinoa is a new ingredient for two out of the three chefs. Will they be able to take something unknown and create something great? The two finalists pour their hearts into making fantastic desserts that include grapes and cream cheese. And an emotional victory brings an incredible competition to its conclusion. This one is a tearjerker so plan to have a box of tissues nearby!
In case you missed this special episode of Chopped last week, you can watch it on the Food Network on Saturday December 3, 2011 12:00PM ET/PT; Tuesday December 6, 2011 6:00PM ET/PT or Saturday January 7, 2012 9:00 PM ET/PT!
School Milk Resources SNA has compiled a number of milk related resources from the Milk Processor Education Program (MilkPEP) and the National Dairy Council to help explain the important nutritional benefits of milk to parents, reporters and other members of your community. You’ll find several resources to help you present a strong case for the important role of flavored milk in schools. The tools from MilkPEP include fact sheets on the essential nutrients in lowfat milk, both white and flavored, and the impact on student consumption when flavored milk is eliminated from the lunchroom.
National Dairy Council’s Flavored Milk Toolkit also includes a number of helpful handouts and presentations on the importance of flavored milk.
