Veggies Matter

Our Veggie Revolution program will focus on veggies and will introduce interesting recipes and new ways to incorporate seasonal fresh vegetables into our diets.

This August peppers are a delicious addition to any meal or eaten alone as a snack! Peppers come in different varieties including bell peppers, sweet peppers and chili peppers. We are featuring them all month in unique ways. Make sure to grab a Veggies Matter recipe card to bring home for a Flik favorite, Quinoa Stuffed Red Peppers!

Our Foods Matter program will focus on fruit. Fruits Matter will introduce interesting recipes and ways to incorporate seasonal fresh fruit, stone fruit, berries, and melons into our diets.

Food Focus

This year's Food Focus program, #BeatsbyFlik, will explore music and it's connection to food. What food comes to mind when you think Pop music? Salsa? What about Country music?

This month #BeatsbyFlik brings you a Country music set list! We'll be serving up authentic country meals with all the fixins this August. You won't want to miss out on the cornbread and BBQ!

This year's Food Focus program will travel the world exploring breakfast. Throughout the year, International Breakfast for Lunch will focus on the breakfast hour. We will begin in Mexico and celebrate far away cuisines from Japan, Germany, and the Middle East.

Traveling Flavors

Our Traveling Flavors program will take to the sea this year with a Caribbean Cruise that will float into your dining hall. Hit all the different food ports of call from Miami to Cuba and be sure to #CruisewithFlik and tweet its arrival.

Superfoods

Superfoods are foods that provide health benefits beyond their basic nutrient content. Typically seasonal, the monthly Superfood will be readily available and easy to incorporate into your meal. When possible, we display the Superfood in its raw form so that students can see what the food looks like before it is cooked.

August's superfood is melon! Melon has the superpower of hydro absorption, their high water content will help you to stay hydrated. Eat some Watermelon, Cantaloupe, and Honeydew to gain this superpower!

Tastings

Our Tastings program made to offer samples of nutritious foods in enticing ways. As we know, healthy eating is about balance and variety. While many children are interested in different kinds of foods and are willing to try new things, others are often averse to trying new foods. Ongoing encouragement to try a small amount of a new, healthy food or dish is key in acceptance –and enjoyment! –of this food. It can then be incorporated into the menu soon after the tasting and on an ongoing basis for students.
