Sara Jones has the following Menu tips for families who have children enjoying hot lunch at Sea Cliff School--
Look for these new options on the May Lunch Menu!
May 5 & 26 - Our Macaroni and Cheese is now made with whole grain noodles and less saturated fat served with ALL FRESH SIDES!
May 7 – New Item as an alternative to the chicken nuggets: Baked Potato with Cheese and Broccoli
May 10 - Don't overlook the English Muffin pizza. These are made here and contain far fewer artificial ingredients than the cheese pizza slices which arrive frozen from a large manufacturer
May 12 - Whole Grain Rotini with Broccoli in Garlic and Olive Oil
May 14 – If you want to skip the fried mozzarella sticks, try the new Veggie Cheese Wrap instead with part skim mozzarella and fresh vegetables.
May 18 - On Sliders day, you also have a choice of a Veggie burger (These are Dr. Praeger's brand)
May 21 – New April Item Returns: Cheesy Brown Rice and Broccoli with ALL FRESH SIDES!
May 24 - The pizza bagels are made here and contain far fewer artificial ingredients than the cheese pizza slices which arrive frozen from a large manufacturer
MAY 25 – THE OSWALD’S WINNING CHILI RECIPE!!! DON’T MISS IT!!!
May 27 - On Taco Day, you can now choose a Veggie taco option with beans, corn and salsa if you'd like to avoid the commodity meats in the tacos.
Please make sure you check out the labels and nutritional information or yourself when helping your child make choices about lunch. All labels are available at: http://www.northshore.k12.ny.us/Foodserviceinfo/nutritionlabels.htm
