February's menu is here, and we have a great selection of entrees, sides, snacks and breakfasts for you to choose from! 

Chili 3 Ways!

Chili is a great way to warm up when it is cold outside. This month, we feature three different chili recipes that kids are sure to love.  We have the very popular - and vegetarian - Veggie Chili with Whole Grain Rice, Turkey Chili with Whole Grain Rice, and the tasty Veggie Chili Mac.

Breakfast for Lunch

Breakfast for lunch is a fun way to mix things up for the kids. In February, Smart Lunches will feature our Whole Grain French Toast with Eggs, and our Cheesy Frittata with Whole Wheat Bread. And if you really want to mix things up, we even have Chicken & Waffles!

Expanding Palates

Smart Lunches offers many entrees that introduce flavors of great culinary traditions from around the world.  Some examples from our February menu include:

  • Arroz Con Pollo

These exceptional entrees are paired with tasty sides like, cucumbers, mashed sweet potatoes, vegetarian baked beans, peas, steamed carrots, Italian green beans, pears, apples, orange wedges or mango.
