Wellness Wednesday
 I Tried Something New Today!
I Tried Something New Today!

How do we get students to choose healthy foods?

It takes kids FIVE to SIX times seeing and tasting something new before they will really like it.  Chef Basil's Wellness Wednesday is a monthly opportunity for students to sample a new food item.  The samples will coordinate with the new regulations of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act. 

How will Wellness Wednesday work?

Each month at School Street Elementary and GGB Elementary on a specified Wednesday, students will have the opportunity to try something new.  Samples of the featured recipe of the month will be available for the students to try.  When a student tries one of the sample items, they will get a colorful Chef Basil sticker that says "I tried something NEW today!"  The Scoop On Nutrition from Chef Basil, Chef of Nutrition newsletter will be sent home monthly featuring the sample item along with a fun activity on the back.
