AN OLD STANDBY THAT’LL SATISFY NEW REQUIREMENTS.
Bush’s Best® Beans have been around for over 100 years. While you may already be using them in your kitchen, new government regulations regarding kids’ cuisine may inspire you to bring more of this nutrient-packed vegetable to your menu.
From the First Lady’s “Let’s Move” initiative to the NRA’s “Kids LiveWell“ Program, improving nutrition levels in both school lunch programs and restaurants has become a key consideration in 2013.
Here are a few suggestions that can help get things started:
- Reformulate menu items. Create healthier versions of kids’ favorites without sacrificing taste. Consider PINTO BEAN SLIDERS
- Offer healthier sides. Instead of French fries try honey chipotle baked beans
- Try adding new menu items that don’t require a lot of prep. BAKED bean QUESADILLAS, BAKED NACHOS with garbanzo cheese sauce or even BEANS AND GREENS PASTA
