What's for Lunch - Thurs., 3/24

Applegate Hot Dog on Whole Wheat Bun
Baked Shoestring “Fries”
Veggie Sticks
Strawberry Yogurt Smoothie

It's Kid's Menu week  - nuggets, grilled cheese, hot dogs, mac n cheese.....

The hot dogs are from Applegate Farms. The ingredients are just: beef, water, sea salt, less than 2% of the following: celery juice, sodium lactate (from beets), lactic acid starter culture (not from milk), onion powder, spices, garlic powder, paprika. They have 6g of fat(2.5g saturated) and 380 mg of sodium. They are dairy-, casein- and gluten-free. 

The fries are baked USDA commodity potatoes that arrive frozen. The veggie sticks should be fresh and based on what's available. 

The smoothie  will be made with either plain yogurt to which we add  honey or vanilla yogurt (no honey) if we can't get plain plus 1% milk and frozen strawberries.

Or, you can encourage your kid to eat off the kid's menu and instead try an alternate entree.  

You can always get an egg salad plate or tuna in a pita.  Both of these look very good.

Soup is available every day- on Tuesday and Thursdays it is homemade Tomato Rice.  As an alternate entree, you can get a 1/2 wrap and the soup.  Wraps have romaine lettuce and a white flour tortilla.  On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the wrap is tuna.

The special entree for March is Abraham Lincoln's Fruit Plate -- carried over from February by popular demand. It includes:  APPLES, ORANGES, GRAPES & FRESH STRAWBERRIES
served with 100% Whole Wheat Carr’s Crackers & Mozzarella Strips plus your choice of sides.
