“We seek to involve our students in the nutrition program at ANCS in many ways. At the elementary campus, the third through fifth grade classes help with the dishes and prepping ingredients. This involves them at an early level. And at the middle campus, we teach an Academic Growth Period course that is a mix of basic culinary skills and specific subject areas like baking, traditional Mexican cuisine, and food preservation. The students in the class make food that is served at both campuses.”Chef David Bradley

“Picky eaters are always an issue both at school and at home. Our hope is that repetition will help. A skeptical child might not try something the first time around, but if they see other students enjoying it, maybe next time they will try it.”
