Chef raises the bar for BPS school lunches


Boston recently unveiled an ambitious new Healthy Meals Initiative to make school lunch more nutritious and delicious, with help from a professional chef. Kirk Conrad left a distinguished career in the private sector to cook full-time in the Umana and Frederick middle schools cafeterias. Mr. Conrad is also working closely with Food & Nutrition Services staff and cafeteria managers throughout the district to develop creative and healthy ways to prepare and present meals. Mayor Menino recently joined officials from BPS and the Boston Public Health Commission to announce the initiative at the Umana Middle School Academy.

I am very motivated to know of these changes and partnerships that are being built within our city. I have three daughter's and I am very pleased that healthy eating habits are going to be modeled in school. Also, Last week, one of my parents from the Haynes EEC brought this article to share with me because we were talking about the wellness policy. Our parents were really happy to hear Boston's plan around health and wellness.

I've been looking through school lunches to help determine which school I want my kids to go to. Now if I can just find a school with food like this!
