School nutrition professionals in a Connecticut district are using some recipes from the "Recipes for Healthy Kids Cookbook," developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, to prepare made-from-scratch meals for students. As part of a new pilot program to provide healthier meals for students, nutrition professionals will prepare one hot and one cold meal for students daily through the end of the year. It's estimated the made-from-scratch meals will take an additional hour to prepare, but nutrition professionals say it is worth it.
