sweetgreen

photo (5)We had the pleasure of being invited to the new sweetgreen opening in NOMAD last week during the heat wave.

It was so refreshing to walk through those doors, into a cold, clean, brand new space serving up healthy, local salads with a smile.

A perfect light meal for such a heavy and hot day!

Not only does sweetgreen source local and organic produce, they serve meat proteins that are all antibiotic and hormone free, which is great news for all.

To top it all off, they work with schools to promote healthy eating, which is quite the noble cause, and is right up our alley!

Their grand opening is tomorrow, so head on over to 1164 Broadway for a delightful and local lunch experience.

nutrition education in the cafeteria part II

18 May

Our cafeteria’s serve not only nutritious lunches, but also nutrition education! Along with our monthly table tops filled with recipes, healthy + seasonal eating tips and nutrition + wellness information for our children to read, we also integrate food labels into the cafeteria. Our labels depict how a certain ingredient grows in nature, along with allergen information (which is also indicated on our school-wide menus). We understand what it’s like to have children with food allergies, so we wanted to make it as easy as possible for our children to chose what to eat each day. They love reading our food labels, and have found them to be a useful tool that aids them during their lunch experience.
