Ms. Sara, who prepares our snacks, is so excited to share her ideas with SEA! Menu planning is something she loves to do, as well as coordinating the snack schedule. She has worked with children and families for more than 20 years. After working in injury prevention for more than 10 years, she attended culinary school. Over the past 8 years, she has worked in various culinary environments, including preparing food for those with special diets and menu planning.
Her main goal is to incorporate healthy foods, which also includes introducing new foods and trying to make food and eating more enjoyable. Building variety into the menu and adding fresh and seasonal foods are also key.
Scripps Exploring Academy is a Nut-Free Zone. We do not serve anything containing peanuts or tree nuts and DO NOT ALLOW parents to pack anything with tree nuts of any kind in their child's lunch (this includes peanut butter, almonds, etc.). Thank you!
Ms. Sara sees her role as supporting the work of the teachers at SEA, which may include some themed snack items and limiting the amount of preparation that they need to do.
