The menu reads as follows: Chicken Broccoli Alfredo over Pasta, Green Beans, Breadstick, Pear
What they got: Chicken patty broccoli alfredo with pasta, green beans, breadstick, a pear and lowfat milk
This is one of those meals that sound great but then don't deliver. I would say that these pre-schoolers were less than happy with this one. Some tried the chicken broccoli alfredo but most frowned upon the white sauce.
Curious to know what kind of chicken it was made with, I bravely tucked into a piece. Leathery. Rubbery. Basically a chicken nugget without the batter but with grill marks!
It actually didn't taste like much or perhaps I was too freaked out by the texture to even notice any flavor. I have to say that the chicken was totally unappetizing and can't imagine ever enjoying it in any way, shape or form. I could not quite figure out the alfredo sauce; was it 'home-made' or did it come from a bottle? Again, thank goodness for the breadstick, pear and milk, otherwise some kids would have gone back to class hungry. I watched one of the teachers eat a piece of chicken, and as quickly as she took that bite, she put down the spork. End of meal.
On a different note, a teacher approached me and asked if I had been checking out the school breakfasts. Her daughter attends preschool at Brandt and her complaint was that the kids were not being served what the menu states and then on top of that what was being served was basically sugar. No surprise there!
I would like to call upon the parents at Brandt to start checking in on some breakfasts and lunches. I know the school year is coming to an end but let's get started now. Seems to me that when we (parents) get involved things happen!
Wishing everyone a very happy memorial weekend.
