Campers attending this past Thursday’s day camp (there was no school last Thursday and Friday due to Fall Break) had a wonderful time testing out their cooking skills! Special guest Chef Armando Rodriguez – owner and chef of Healthy Innovations, which caters to TCDS for our school’s lunch program – spent time with the kids, teaching them how to cook a variety of items.
The younger campers made their own banana pudding – a favorite specialty that appears once a week on our school’s salad bar.
It was stir fry fun for the older campers. The kids made a tasty stir fry and put it over rice. This dish is currently not offered as an option for our school’s lunch program, but the kids enjoyed eating it as a snack during camp.
These campers also got the inside scoop as to how Chef Armando makes banana pudding.
It was a fun day for campers, and they went home with their stomachs full!
