MANY Thumbs UP for Wisconsin School Spinach

Thursday was a wonderful day to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee of the the Wisconsin Dietetic Association at their Annual Meeting in the Wisconsin Dells.

My presentation was about Food Trends, Past, Present, and Future (click title for PDFs of all my recent presentations).

It was also a wonderful time to celebrate all the School Meals That Rock in Wisconsin ... including the latest entry from Nicole Jones, RD, in Westby Area School District, Wisconsin:

Westby School District students sampled Creamy Spinach Dip as part of the Farm to School Harvest of the Month taste testing. The spinach was grown and donated by a local farmer and prepared in the school kitchen. The spinach dip provided an excellent source of antioxidants and vitamins and minerals; it contains 14 calories and 0 grams of fat in one ounce. Students enjoyed sampling the spinach dip as they have enjoyed other veggies including cabbage, beets, sweet potatoes and eggplant.
