Happy Summer! We’re getting all of the new and fun programming ready for this upcoming school year and we can’t wait until school is back in session! Make sure to look out for some #FlikSoCHEESY bites and #SuperPOWERFoods upon arriving back to school this Fall! #Tastings will be back this year and we have some more creative #RevvedUp DELISH-dishes to share with you! We hope you are covered in sunscreen and running around enjoying the summer break! Make sure to stay hydrated and start getting ready to jump back into the classroom and into our dining halls!
Our last Veggie Revolution pick of the school year is peppers. They are delicious in meals and eaten alone as a snack! Different varieties of peppers including bell, sweet, and chili, will all be featured. Make sure to grab a Veggies Matter recipe card for a Flik favorite, Quinoa Stuffed Red Peppers!
Yee-haw! It’s time for our final #BeatsbyFlik of the school year, Country! We'll be serving up authentic country music meals with all the fixins. You won't want to miss out on the cornbread and BBQ!
Our Traveling Flavors program will take you on a tour of culinary delight via the TF Express. All aboard to taste the flavors of Paris, Munich, Budapest and Istanbul! Be sure to tweet its arrival with #TFEXPRESS.
June brings in our last superfood of the year, melon! Melon's superpower is hydro absorption, their high water content will help you to stay hydrated. Eat some Watermelon, Cantaloupe, and Honeydew to gain this superpower!
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.
