Sweet Potato Crinkles
Fruit/Veggies at Salad Bar

The salad bar is back....and just in time.

We were using whole wheat bread for this but went back to the Challah bread. I don't know why. .  The syrup is basically HFCS.  They are looking for an affordable maple syrup but do not have one yet - but they will be limiting the serving size this year in the meantime.  Actual lunch from our schools above. This meal has a lot of sugar, simple carbohydrates -- no whole grains.

The turkey bacon is by Applegate.  Here are the ingredients: Turkey (Turkey Used Never Administered Antibiotics, Growth Promotants or Animal By-products), Water, Sea Salt, Maple Sugar, Celery Juice, Onion Powder, Spices, Lactic Acid Starter Culture (not From Milk.)  They promote it as nitrate-free but this NYT article indicates otherwise - and cites the company saying their products have the same level (naturally) of cancer-causing nitrates as conventional brands. Read more about nitrates here.


I do not believe the wrap used for the egg and cheese is whole grain.

Fresh oranges

The Crinkles are fries by McCains that are flash fried and then frozen with 190mg of sodium and 7g of fat (one is saturated).

After much work, discussion and research, our district has discontinued the use of most USDA commodity beef for a variety of health reasons and contracted with a New York State farm to provide beef raised without antibiotics and hormones. It is more expensive and there is less beef on the menu as a result but it is a huge improvement in the quality of our lunches. So, enjoy your hamburger on a whole grain bun.

The soup is Minestrone - 620mg of sodium. INGREDIENTS: Water, Tomatoes (Tomatoes, Tomato Puree, Salt, Calcium Chloride, Citric Acid), Great Northern Beans, Carrots, Onions, Yellow Squash, Zucchini Squash, Green Beans, Vegetable Base (Sauteed Vegetables [Carrots, Celery, Onions, Corn Oil], Sugar, Maltodextrin, Salt, Corn Starch, Yeast Extract), Pasta (Wheat, Egg White, Glycerol Monostearate, Niacin, Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Romano Cheese (Sheep's Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Rennet), Olive Oil, Garlic, Modified Corn Starch, Salt, Parley and Spice.

Happy Valentine's Day!

Our district has contracted with a New York State farm to provide beef raised without antibiotics and hormones. It is more expensive and there is less beef on the menu as a result but it is a huge improvement in the quality of our lunches. We season and prepare this dish.

The hard taco shells from Mission foodservice contain: whole grain corn, water, vegetable oil (one or more of the following: cottonseed oil, corn oil or palm oil), contains 2% or less of niacin, reduced iron, thiamine, mononitrate, riboflavin lime. No sodium - 6g of fat (2 of which are saturated)

The quesadilla has Monterrey Jack cheese and canned black beans served in a flour tortilla - no whole grains. The tortillas are from Tyson and contain:  Bleached Enriched Wheat Flour (Flour, Malted Barley Flour, Niacin, Reduced Iron, Thiamine Mononitrate, Riboflavin, Folic Acid), Water, Soybean Oil, Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil (Contains one or more of the following: Cottonseed Oil, Soybean Oil), Mono- and Diglycerides, Contains 2% or less of the following: Salt, Baking Powder (Sodium Acid Pyrophosphate, Sodium Bicarbonate, Corn Starch, Monocalcium Phosphate), Fumaric Acid, Sodium Bicarbonate, Dough Conditioner (Wheat Flour, Calcium Sulfate, Sorbic Acid), Preservative (Sodium Propionate and Potassium Sorbate).  Sodium is 380mg. 5g of fat (1 of which is saturated).

The smoothie  will be made with plain yogurt to which we add  honey plus 1% milk and strawberries. The food service department says the strawberries are fresh -- we previously used frozen and have asked about the country of origin (Frozen Chinese strawberries sickened thousands of German school children earlier this year).

What's for Lunch - Wednesday, February 13th

ARROZ CON POLLO
Latin-Style Diced Chicken
OR
Chicken Caesar Wrap
Rice and Pinto Beans
Romaine Salad w/Ranch Dressing
Orange Wedges

The chicken is from Tyson. It is described as "1/2" diced chicken meat" and as "boneless, skinless, and fully cooked." It is chicken breast.

The chicken caesar wrap is also made with Tyson chicken and I don't think the wrap is whole grain. 

We usually serve brown (whole grain) rice but in our facilities we cannot cook it per current recommendations to rinse repeatedly and boil in excess water which should be drained (like pasta) to remove as much arsenic as possible. Pinto beans are canned.

Ranch dressing is an organic full-fat ranch from Chelten.

Fresh oranges.

The soup is broccoli cheddar.  The ingredients are: Chicken Stock (Water, Chicken Base [Chicken, Salt, Rendered Chicken Fat, Dextrose, Sugar, Natural Flavoring, Roast Chicken Flavor (Rendered Chicken Fat, Flavor, Safflower Oil), Chicken Broth, Turmeric]), Broccoli, Light Cream, Water, Cheddar Cheese (Pasteurized Milk, Cheese Culture, Salt, Enzymes, Annato, Powdered Cellulose [To Prevent Caking]), Contains 2% or less of: Butter (Cream, Salt), Modified Food Starch, Wheat Flour, Carrots, Hot Pepper Sauce (Distilled Vinegar, Red Pepper, Salt) and Spice.  Plus - 850 mg of sodium and 19g of fat -- 11g of which are saturated.

The hot dogs are from Applegate Farms - so they are far better than many hot dogs. They have 8g of fat and 330mg of sodium. The ingredients are just: beef, water, sea salt, less than 2% of the following: celery juice, sodium lactate (from beets), lactic acid starter culture (not from milk), onion powder, spices, garlic powder, paprika. They have 6g of fat(2.5g saturated) and 380 mg of sodium. They are dairy-, casein- and gluten-free. The bun is whole wheat. 

The grilled cheese sandwich is made with cheddar or American on whole wheat bread.  We use Nature's Own Whole Wheat Bread for these. The ingredients are: Stone ground whole wheat flour, water, brown sugar, yeast, wheat gluten, contains 2% of less of each of the following: salt, vegetable oil, (soybean oil or canola) dough, conditioners (sodium stearoyl lactylate, calcium, stearoyl-2, Lactylate, Monoglycerides, calcium iodate, ethoxylated mono and digylcerides, calcium, stearoyl2 Lactylate, calcium peroxide, datem, cultured wheat flour, vinegar, calcium, sulfate, monocalcium, phosphate, yeast food (ammonium sulfate) soy lecithin

Fresh cucumbers and peppers with a full-fat organic ranch dressing for the dip. We serve a lot of these two vegetables because they are kid-friendly but they are also notoriously high in pesticide residue. The Environmental Working Group recommends you buy organic for these vegetables in particular - but we can't do that with a $3 lunch.
