This webinar will showcase creative, kid-approved ways to serve pulses – chickpeas, dry peas, beans and lentils – in school meals. Pulses help to meet the National School Lunch Program regulations for serving beans and legumes, as well as meet the eating styles of all students, including vegetarian and vegan. School meal expert, Dayle Hayes, MS, RD, will share insights on the culinary, nutrition and financial benefits of serving pulses in schools. The webinar will feature local school foodservice directors, who will share smart tips for introducing new pulse-based recipes to students of all ages.
