U of S Nursing Students Fresh Food Buffets
A Fresh Approach to Lunch
Dear Parents and Guardians:
The U of S nursing students are pleased to invite your child to a healthy Fresh Food Buffet lunch.
On March 11, 2015 your child can enjoy a healthy fun lunch at Warman Elementary School from the U of S nursing students’ friendly salad bar buffet. Menu items will include three fruit choices (BC apples, pineapple, and oranges), five vegetable choices (carrots, romaine lettuce, cucumbers, peppers, broccoli, and cherry tomatoes), three protein choices (cheese, hard boiled eggs, mixed bean salad), two grain options (whole wheat tortillas, whole wheat buns). We strive to have a nut-free menu. Allergen foods will be separated and safe gluten free options will be available.
Not only will the grade two students have a wonderful lunch, but they will also enjoy the opportunity to select a well-balanced healthy lunch for themselves. Our main focus with the fresh food buffet lunch will be increasing consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains and legumes. Proceeds from the Fresh Food Buffet will go towards the Kids in the Garden program and the purchase of a salad bar lunch tool kit, to assist with future Fresh Food Buffets.
Parents of the grade two students are welcome to join their child for lunch at the same cost of $5.50 per adult and a cost of $2.00 per child under 5 years. Tables will be set up in the gym or parents can sit with their child in the classroom.
We would like to encourage children to bring a plate and fork from home to reduce waste.
