Tulsa Public Schools and Sodexo hosted the finals for the district-wide Future Chefs: Healthy Breakfast Challenge on Thursday, March 8 at Hale High School.
The Future Chefs challenge is an "Iron Chef"-style cooking competition. The program, part of Sodexo's commitment to student well-being, teaches kids about making healthy eating choices by encouraging them to make their own fun and nutritious breakfasts.
Almost 200 7th- and 8th-grade students submitted healthy breakfast recipes including Tropical Fruit Bread, Maple Pumpkin Pie Yogurt Parfait, and the Ironman and Mushroom Omelet. Ten finalists will prepare their creations and present them to a panel of judges. Creations will be judged on originality, taste, presentation and use of healthy ingredients.
The judges panel features district administrators and local culinary experts, including the nationally-recognized child cook, 11-year-old Remmi Smith, Sodexo's student ambassador for child nutrition.
TPS students join more than 1,000 other students at 247 Sodexo-served schools in 28 states in this fun and educational challenge.
Sodexo, a partner with First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move initiative to end childhood obesity, is committed to take measurable sustainable actions that ensure a brighter future in the areas of health and wellness, environmental stewardship and community development. Sodexo focuses on nutrition, achievement, environment, community and activity to promote student well-being and achievement.

DIY World Change: 14 Kids You Should Know About and Their Incredible Projects
HI AMAZING KIDS! March is the month I am ready to say “Goodbye” to winter and all the cold weather! How about you? The really great thing about March is on the 21st it is California Strawberry Day!
I don’t know where you live, but if you’re like me and you are in the middle of a cold winter, you likely agree that nothing fights the chills and wintry weather like a big pot of hot soup. In fact, I am getting warm just thinking about it.
When I started my business I thought I understood the concept of a partnership. With my partner(my mother) we formed Cook Time with Remmi LLC. With my talent and dream and her money and hard work…we got the business off the ground.
The national program, which is in its fourth year and part of Sodexo’s commitment to bolstering communities by promoting well-being in support of achievement, was created to get students thinking about making healthy food choices in life while also encouraging them to get active and creative in the kitchen.
Remmi teaches us how a traditional dish like salsa can made is a variety of interesting & healthy ways.
