Look on the site for the Monthly Fresh Pick. The Sodexo Fresh Pick program is designed to further the nutrition education of students, parents and educators by focusing on the many positive benefits of eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Each month features an instructional recipe video starring Sodexo Ambassador and Student Chef, Chef Remmi, using the Fresh Pick nutritional item of the month.
While you are visiting with Lift-Off!, don’t forget to check out our series of healthy cooking videos with Sodexo National Director of Wellness, Roxanne Moore, RDN. Throughout the videos, students talk about why each recipe is healthy. Many of the recipes were adapted from the Share Our Strength Cooking Matters program, the Gluten Intolerance Group or Sodexo and are designed to be kid-friendly.
