Fort Bend Independent School District Cafeteria Managers Compete in 2nd Annual Activate4Kids “Chopped” Challenge
Cafeteria managers from Fort Bend Independent School District (FBISD) campuses came together at Dulles High School January 30 to compete in the second annual UnitedHealthcare Activate4Kids’ Healthy Cook-Off, based loosely on the Food Network’s hit show, “Chopped.”
Eleven teams with two cafeteria managers and a student from the FBISD culinary arts program were each given a mystery basket with five healthy ingredients. With 20 minutes on the clock, they were challenged to create healthy and tasty dishes that would appeal to students in three categories: Breakfast, Vegetarian and Main Entrée. An expert panel of FBISD and community leaders, plus a student member of Activate4Kids’ obesity prevention program JOIN for ME, judged the dishes.
Activate4Kids, a partnership with UnitedHealthcare, schools and communities, is a national school wellness initiative designed to encourage a healthy lifestyle for America’s children. The program brings resources directly to school districts with the goal of making them a healthy place for kids to learn, at no cost to the schools or families.
