Potato Floats, Sundaes, Bowls, Bars — Kids Love them All!

As you well know, kids want choice.  This “build-it-yourself” potato concept works well on the school salad bar and on the serving line… and it’s a great idea for home, too!  Start with the universal favorite–POTATOES–add healthy toppings.  Soon, you’ll have a new student and staff favorite: delicious, nutritious, easy to prep-and-serve and affordable.

1. Lay the potato foundation:  use mashed, roasted, baked or wedges. Remember, potatoes are available fresh, frozen and instant, and this idea works for them all.

2. Add your toppings: Offer a variety of steamed or sautéed vegetables–broccoli, red and yellow peppers, diced tomatoes, mushrooms, zucchini, beans…you get the idea.  Provide a protein option like low-fat ground turkey or beef, shredded pork or chicken, or chili con carne.

3. Finish with a flash of flavor:  Drizzle a little pesto, salsa, green chili or gravy. Top with low-fat sour cream or plain Greek yogurt.  Sprinkle a little cheddar or mozzarella cheese.

Is your mouth watering?  Imagine what those kiddos will do when they see what you’ve created!
