    Pittsburgh Public School students learn about nutrition during National School Breakfast Week

    It’s National School Breakfast Week, and at Pittsburgh Minadeo, students are getting a lesson in nutrition.

    On Tuesday, the Pre-K-5 students taste-tested a new breakfast fruit recipe prepared by food service employees at the school.

    It’s made of canned and fresh pears, topped with homemade granola and whipped cream, all created by Pittsburgh Public School’s Chef Missy. It’s called Chef Missy’s Pear Bake.

    Pittsburgh Minadeo got feedback from the students — to decide if the pear bake will be served again. It looks like the bake was a hit. The survey came back with an 84% acceptance rate!

    “It’s a national movement to get our kids eating better, eating healthier and showing them that it can be done, and it doesn’t have to be nasty,” Chef Missy said about National School Breakfast Week.

    PPS is celebrating the initiative all week, partnering with Alliance for a Healthier Generation, UPMC Children’s Hospital and Del Monte Foods to highlight the importance of healthy eating.
