Educating our students about nutrition
Flik goes above and beyond by offering nutrition education programs that empower students to make healthy choices on a daily basis. By providing wholesome meals in conjunction with nutrition education, they are equpping our students with the tools to live a healthy life. Below are some of the featured programs for the 2018-19 school year:
S.E.E.D Program: Love Food, Not Waste!
The Sustainable Eating and Environmental Dining (S.E.E.D.) program was designed as our way of ensuring that we are engaging in positive practices that complement the Flik Independent School Dining's food and nutrition philosophy. The goal is to protect the environment and the ability for future generations to thrive. This year's S.E.E.D. program focus is Love Food, Not Waste. Through this program we will focus on many different ways the dining services staff can help the school and community live more sustainably.
Tastings is an opportunity for culinary experimentation and menu building, as well as for communication with students. Tastings are a great (and simple!) way to generate interest in the dining program by highlighting something special and to encourage students to try a small amount of a new healthy food or dish. The idea is that this exposure will lead to acceptance – and enjoyment! – of this food.
Our monthly Food Focus is a way of introducing culinary trends and traditions to your student. We are heading into the 2019 fall semester with #FlikStreetFoods! Each month we will offer a different ethnic hand-held street food.
Last year we went around the country tasting great BBQ. This year's Traveling Flavors will be taking a tour of Italy! We will explore several different regions of Italy focusing on specific pastas in each location.
Healthy Foods Matter
This year's focus will be on the colors of the rainbow! Each month we will focus on specific fruits and veggies that will help color our plates! #painttheplate
Flik Dining is now available to provide catering for your event! A specific catering menu will be coming soon. In the meantime, please contact Chef Keith at email@example.com or 706.731.5260, ex. 2328 if you have any catering needs.
