Dinner Ideas Done

Gulfside Elementary School recently had their monthly family nutrition night and learned all about how to make affordable meals that incorporate as many food groups as possible. The food demo was on vegetable quesadillas, which were a huge hit with the 19 parents and 25 kids in attendance. The quesadillas had 4 out of the 5 food groups: spinach, corn , and zucchini for the vegetables; black beans for the protein; whole wheat tortilla shells for the grains; and cheese for the dairy food. Dishes like this are great for being creative (maybe add onions and bell peppers) and for trying to use up produce that is getting old. How would you incorporate a fruit into this dish? If you’re not sure, consider calling us for a lesson! If you would like to learn more about how to get the Family Nutrition Program’s nutrition curriculum started up in your Title I school or organization, please call Shari Bresin at 813-929-2725 or email Sbresin@ufl.edu. Below is the same recipe that the parents and students at Gulfside Elementary got to enjoy. Now you can, too!
