HASTINGS ON HUDSON, N.Y. -- March is "Try it Tuesdays" in the cafeteria as Hastings On Hudson schools.
For National Nutrition Month the theme for 2016 is "Savor the Flavor of Eating Right," which, according to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, "encourages everyone to take time to enjoy food traditions and appreciate the pleasures, great flavors and social experiences food can add to our lives.
How, when, why and where we eat are just as important as what we eat."
Students at Farragut Middle School and Hastings High School will be treated to the following free samples of food during their lunch hour:
- March 15 - Smoothies
- March 22 - Tabbouleh
"We hope to introduce the students to different grains and explore new food options," says Chef Alan on the tasting program.
Students are encouraged to let Chef Alan know what they think after trying new foods.
