Ohio Students Ask for More Spinach!

Posted on 01/03/2012

Sailorway Middle School’s cafeteria (Ohio) had been offering fresh fruits or vegetables every day for years, but when Cafeteria Manager Evie Hess realized many of the fourth graders weren’t taking the fresh produce, she knew it was time to mix up the menu.

So one day Evie ordered fresh strawberries and baby spinach and served them with low fat poppy seed dressing. Her assistant said, “No way are they going to eat this!” but the class scooped up every single serving and students were asking for more the rest of the week!

Evie knows you have to get creative if you want kids to try their fruits and veggies. She also serves pineapple tidbits with a sprinkling of blueberries and pairs sugar snap peas with cherry tomatoes for a colorful serving line. She still comes across students who don’t recognize the fresh foods she serves, but thanks to the school meal program, Sailorway students are learning to love their fruits and veggies.

    I like veggies more than fruits.

  • Wyatt Baldwin January 4th, 2012 12:50 pm

    I like fruit more than vegetables and my favorite lunch is bosco sticks and pepperoni pizza. I like a lot of the lunch foods and sometimes I actually eat the fruit because it is good.

  • Jessee Shultz January 4th, 2012 12:50 pm

    I love fruit and veggies I wish we had more of them, they taste so good, I love strawberries the most though.

  • Jakob Koleszar January 4th, 2012 12:52 pm

    I love the fruit more than veggies but still like the veggies :) .

  • Mason Montgomery January 4th, 2012 12:52 pm

    I really don’t like the vegetables. My favorite lunch is probably nacho’s, pizza or bosco… I wish we could have these more often. :)

  • Zachary Goins January 4th, 2012 12:54 pm

    I liked the candy but it was also a good choose when you put the water and fruit juice. But I think you should bring the candy machine back still a lot of kids like it. And could you try using a fruit salad with strawberry, watermelon, kiwi, and no vegetables.

  • Jonathon Krause January 4th, 2012 12:54 pm

    I like the veggies and fruit.

  • Dylan Smith January 4th, 2012 12:54 pm

    I like how you put fruit juice and water in the vending machine. So I get something most of the time instead of my drink.

  • Jason Norwood January 4th, 2012 12:56 pm

    Hello

    i really do not like spinach. My favorite lunch is nachos, bosco sticks, or taco salad, I wish we had them more often. :)

  • Jonah Pfeil January 4th, 2012 12:56 pm

    Hello
    You should lower the prices on the fruit 66 to $0.50 or $0.75 and you would get students to buy more probably. I LOVE THE SALISBURY STEAK but can you put a plastic knife in the case because it is hard to cut it with a plastic spoon or a plastic fork.

  • Mrs Evie Hess January 4th, 2012 6:00 pm

    Thank you Sailorway Students for all the positive comments. I told most of you this morning about this web site and am glad that you visited it. Please stop by the kitchen any day and let me know what else you would like to see on the menu. We are all very proud of our students here and hope that by offering some different fruits and veggies that it keeps you excited about buying school lunches! FYI about the candy machine , that machine was not the property of the food service department and it has been out of this school for 15 months now. Thank you , Mrs Hess / Cafeteria manager

  • Another Lunch Lady January 4th, 2012 7:19 pm

    Hat’s off to Ms. Hess and her attempt to get kids to eat and enjoy their fruits & veggies. Feeding kids is not an easy task! School Food Service is a rather complicated job. You have lot’s of rules and regulations while still trying to please all of your customers.
    Keep up the great work Ms. Hess, your hard work is paying off!

    WE are so lucky to have such a positive cafeteria manager who loves kids. THanks, Evie for putting the kids and their health first!!
    Congrats!

  • Carol Dannhauser January 5th, 2012 3:19 pm

    Your presentation looks so appealing and kid-friendly! And I think it’s great that you asked for your students’ feedback. Seems the kids love nachos. We’re big fans of making nacho chips from scratch (WAY impractical in schools, we know!!) and pulverizing veggies in the food processor to augment the salsa. Keep up the great work.

  • Samantha Williams January 6th, 2012 3:20 pm

    I love fruit..

  • maryjain January 6th, 2012 3:42 pm

    I love all your pizza, salisbury steak but you need less veggies and fruit.

  • William Konnerth January 6th, 2012 3:54 pm

  • Kaitlyn Gatliff January 6th, 2012 3:54 pm

    I think that we should eat more Bosco sticks and :) hotdogs and pizzadippers and a lot more fries especaly fruit and brocoli with cheese you should start serving the little icecream cups

  • Cecelia Dillon January 6th, 2012 3:55 pm

    Hi im in the sixth grade and you should do that with our grade.

  • William Konnerth January 6th, 2012 3:55 pm

    I also think that the servings are too small

  • Branden Horvath January 6th, 2012 3:56 pm

    your all great cooks!!!!! :)

  • Emily January 6th, 2012 3:56 pm

    I love the cold strawberries in a cup! You should serve those more often! I also want little ice cream cups! We need larger servings too! You also should serve BBQ wings! hahaha

  • Cliffy Parsons January 6th, 2012 3:58 pm

    I like the food . But what happened to the 4oz. icecream cups? I think that they should serve chicken Alfredo?

  • Rachel Jones January 6th, 2012 3:58 pm

    I really love your bosco sticks and I think that we could have them more often. I remember the small cups of ice cream we used to get at VIS and that you should sever them for no more than 30 cents. I also love your foot long hot dogs. I miss the cookies that you used to sever, so could you sell smaller cookies, but for the same price. I also love other foods you have, but this is all have I have to say know. Thank you for the food you sever. :)

  • Jenna S. January 6th, 2012 3:59 pm

    i love most of the school lunches but i miss the ice cream cups we used to get

  • Rachel Feathers January 6th, 2012 4:07 pm

    (Warning! This Is A Long Comment!)
    Hi Im Rachel, and I really think we should have Bosco Sticks and Pizza Dippers. I think this because a lot of people really like them, including me. Also, I agree that we should have low fat ice-cream, because it would be healthy for you, because it is low fat. Also, it should be in different flavors, because some people don’t like certain kinds. Also for the ice-cream, the flavors should be: Vanilla, Chocolate, and Rocky Road.
    I also would like more fruit. Maybe bananas, pineapples, strawberries.

    Thank You For Reading!

    I think you should have some more second choices! then kids would by more!

  • Nina LeBlanc January 8th, 2012 2:12 am

  • Nina LeBlanc January 8th, 2012 2:13 am

    Instead of fried chicken or chicken strips, sometimes y6ou should serve grilled chicken!

  • Nina LeBlanc January 8th, 2012 2:27 am

    I really like that you are serving izzes now. I always have them at home and I was so happy when they started selling them at school!

  • Lorie January 9th, 2012 2:16 pm

    Way to go SMS cafeteria staff. You guys rock. I love what you’ve done to get our children to try more fruit and veggies. Keep up the great job Evie and girls. All your hard work is appreciated and is paying off.

  • Joyce January 10th, 2012 6:55 pm

    Congrats to Evie (cafetera manager) and the rest of the girls in the kitchen at Sailorway…you go above and beyond your regular duties to keep the kids guessing on their lunches daily. I knew “you” would be the one…all of your knowledge in food service never ceases to amaze me! Great job!!!!

  • Mrs Evie Hess January 12th, 2012 12:06 pm

    A big thank-you to the students of SMS for all your feedback. I have been reading each and everyone of your comments and ideas. You have inspired me even more to do a better job here at Sailorway Middle School. This is my 26 th year and I believe that you can learn something new everyday!! I see that alot of you have requested Ice-cream. I have found some that meet the Alliance for Healthier Generation guide lines and you will be getting some of them to try. You also inspired me to start up our taste tester team again and it will be called S.N.A.C. This stands for” Student Nutritional Advisory Council”. We are excited about our first taste testing with the new council on February 1st. Thanks to Gordon foods for helping me with this and all the beautiful fruits and veggies!! Mrs Hess/SMS cafeteria manager…and proud of it!!!!

  • Mrs Evie Hess January 17th, 2012 11:23 am

    Stella,
    We are using the Reduced Fat Bosco sticks from Gordon. I do give them 2 to meet the meat alt. requirement. The bread is 25% whole grain on these too. We offer the government Marinara sauce on the side and some take it and some like them plain. Nice meeting you , Stella and good luck there in Tennessee! As we all know , the New Federal guidlines should be along very soon !!

  • Leah February 17th, 2012 1:44 pm

    I’m not glad the school serves lunches. My favorite meal is mini bosco sticks. They took it off the menu for chicken nuggets/patty. Not many like those. I do not. All of these changes aren’t very good.

  • Chase Allgauer February 17th, 2012 1:50 pm

    Personally I love fruits! I will eat pretty much any fruit I think it is a great side dish. Vegetables On the other hand not a fan, I will eat some every now and then.

  • August Blackham February 17th, 2012 1:52 pm

    I think its nice to eat fruits, but I think we should have more desserts, like Blueberry cobbler, or more homemade foods like wraps and maybe a salad bar. And maybe there should be homemade brownies or Mini cakes and chicken legs and pie slices. Like I said more desserts and home style foods.

  • Samantha Hall February 17th, 2012 1:53 pm

    i like pie

  • Tyler Balduff February 17th, 2012 1:53 pm

    I like sherbet and cheeseburgers, and I also like pomegranate seeds. I do not like spinach or the spaghetti that you make.

  • August Blackham February 17th, 2012 1:55 pm

    More Deserts, homestyle foods, and possibly a salad bar.

  • August Blackham February 17th, 2012 2:00 pm

    The macaroni tastes horrible thats the exact reason we home style foods.

  • ian February 17th, 2012 2:35 pm

  • Trevor Foster February 17th, 2012 2:37 pm

  • Zoe Baldwin February 17th, 2012 2:37 pm

    Well if you really wanna no my opinion its i think you guys should stop trying to have healthy food its not working i like how we have salad but not wheat bread and stuff. Also i love hashbrowns!!!! You guys should have them more. And we need more food! Like we don’t get enough! (:

  • Legend Wright February 17th, 2012 2:37 pm

  • Malorie Rini February 17th, 2012 2:40 pm

  • Amanda Pongallo February 17th, 2012 2:41 pm

    My favorite is the pizza and hash browns. We need more food alot of us are still hungry afterwards especially the 7th graders. I think that we should get more than one option of food for our lunch because im not a big fan about the chicken nuggets. You should serve more fries and bosco sticks. You should start serving tator tots (:

  • Matthew February 17th, 2012 3:22 pm

    I like the food but, the portions are too small.

  • Darbi Wood February 17th, 2012 3:23 pm

  • Alexis Koeth February 17th, 2012 3:23 pm

  • Maddi February 17th, 2012 3:24 pm

    I really like the chicken patties but we never have them anymore :( Also, I think we need more food and more variety in our lunches. Having the same things over and over gets old. I really like the peaches too though :3

  • Mikayla Hall February 17th, 2012 3:24 pm

    I love your pizza dippers! My least favorite food is the chicken Patty though. Maybe If we had a little more extra things for the side because a lot of people are always hungry. I really love your fruit though I usually always take it :D

    I pack and buy, but when I buy I usually go for the nachos and mac and cheese. I really enjoy the fresh frozen peaches. I have a few suggestions for you all behind the counter I would like to see some mozzarella sticks on my tray. Also some mexican like quesadillas. Also I would like some chicken Alfredo. I would also want some different themed weeks like mexican and itailan.

  • Kennedy Naill February 21st, 2012 4:13 pm

    I buy lunch everyday at school. Knowing that I have eaten all of our school lunches there are things I would like to change. I personally think that we should have a Mexican week, Italian week, French week, American week, and many more. With these weeks of different cultures we should eat the foods from that culture. Hope this works out. <3
