Healthy Food Choices
Healthy Feature Food of the Month
Healthy Door County 2020 is championing healthy choices in the school lunchroom!
In April students will be sampling Asparagus in the lunchroom.
Fresh, green asparagus is a well-loved vegetable, delectably crisp and sweet. When it’s available at the market or grocery, use it in abundance. Asparagus is amazingly versatile: it can be steamed, simmered, roasted, battered, grilled, sautéed or wok-fried. Thinly sliced, it’s even wonderful raw in a salad.
