Getting back to school means getting organized. Menu Planning and Shopping Lists are two key components to organizing your KES Club for this school year. It’s a great idea to get the kids involved in Menu Planning for your Club. You can ask them what healthy foods they enjoyed last year and what they would like to see this year. You can use a copy of the weekly menu planner attached to start your menu planning today!
When planning KES Club menus, you want to see fruit and milk served daily and a healthy whole grain. Serving fruit in a fun way is always a great idea to get kids excited about healthy eating. Introduce smoothies as a fruit choice – it’s always a hit with the kids. For assistance with Menu Planning or for some creative menu ideas, connect with your KES Regional Coordinator and stay tuned to our Nutrition Blog throughout the year for some healthy and creative recipes.
