Good For You : School lunch gets an education in healthy - Aurora Sentinel

APS itself has been serving scratch-made meals to its kids for about the past six years, said Mona Martinez-Brosh, APS director of nutrition services.
"When I first came here, there was no scratch cooking done whatsoever. We opened up cans, we opened up boxes. We didn't make any of the items from scratch other than the (district's) bakery," Martinez-Brosh said. "Within my second year of the district we started putting those items on the menu, and then in my third year we went full blast with scratch cooking. "I knew we needed to start going away form all those preservatives and additives and fat," Martinez-Brosh said. Where once kitchen staff took frozen burritos out of boxes and placed them into microwaves, now APS works with a supplier to make big batches of beans so cafeteria cooks can make fresh burritos for students, Martinez-Brosh said. "When we first started doing (the scratch cooking) and we were serving chicken, students were like, 'My chicken had a bone in it!,'" Martinez-Brosh said. Martinez-Brosh said part of helping kids make the change was to implement some "stealth health," such as blending in carrots and sweet potatoes into the sauce used for macaroni and cheese, as well as ensuring the food put out on salad bars at schools was actually appealing.


No shame - or shaming - in being hungry at school in Aurora - Aurora Sentinel

APS policy is that no matter how long the account is in the negative, students receive the same meal as every other student, said Mona Martinez-Brosh, APS director of nutritional services.
"We never deny a child a meal whether they're reduced (price lunch) or full paid. We strongly believe at APS that a hungry child cannot learn," Martinez-Brosh said.
