In celebration of National School Breakfast Week, the Magnolia I.S.D. Child Nutrition Department has taken the challenge of introducing our student body to both the health and cognitive benefits of eating a balanced breakfast every day. During this week long celebration, the nutrition department has added new menu items showcasing local produce and different methods of preparing
healthy and nutritious breakfast items for our students.
As part of this week’s festivities, our District Chef Adan Cortez III, will be touring the district to promote National School Breakfast Week by putting on cooking demonstrations for the students. He will be visiting Smith Elementary on Monday with a “Green Eggs & Ham” demo during breakfast. Chef Cortez will present to students the health facts and benefits of eating spinach, which is the colorant in the eggs. He will also explain the many uses for spinach in everyday cooking. Finally, the chef will encourage reading by recommending that students read “Green Eggs & Ham” by Dr. Seuss in celebration of his birthday.
