To celebrate School Breakfast Week
, Magnolia ISD put on a week-long event to highlight the health and cognitive benefits of consuming a balanced breakfast on a daily basis. District Chef Adan Cortez III visited a few campuses to show the students that cooking breakfast can be fun and easy. He presented cooking demonstrations during the breakfast service at each of the school campuses. His objectives were to show the students the importance of integrating fruits and vegetables into breakfast and also to highlight the value of choosing local products in order to help stimulate the local economy.
During the week, he demonstrated preparing green eggs and ham, citrus parfaits, cauliflower scramble burritos, strawberry smoothies, and oatmeal toppers. With each of these demonstrations, he presented the recipe to the students as well as discussed the nutritional benefits of the main ingredients.
