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.
