Episode 145 “How do you get kids to eat their vegetables?”
On this week’s episode we have the wonderful opportunity of sitting down with Shannon Simpson and Caroline Fisher and talking about the amazing salad bar program and Huband Elementary. This program provides a healthy nutritious meal available to all the students for a low cost. Students help portion it, serve it, and importantly not waste anything. Grab a plate and dive in with us as we learn about this program and how you could start it in your own school.
This episode 150 we are lucky enough to have Shannon Simpson from Shannon’s Tool Box and Huband Salad bar fame to discuss the joys of food labels. We take time to learn not just what the ingredients are but what they mean from serving sizes, fat to sugar and everything in between. We also have some helpful suggestions of what you should be eating. After listening here is a list of the Dirty Dozen; Strawberries, Apples, Nectarines, Peaches, Celery, Grapes, Cherries, Spinach, Tomatoes, Sweet bell peppers, Cherry tomatoes, and Cucumbers. Hope this can help you plan your next meal.
