Each recipe in the collection features a “Cool Bean of the Month,” which can link classroom to cafeteria, with a timely social studies topic (see below), enriching the lessons, and fostering a curiosity and appreciation for our global community.
Lean and Green Kids wants to support teachers and school food professionals working hard to make more healthy, plant-based school meals a successful part of a comprehensive education experience, and towards that goal, we have created several food education resources, including cafeteria banners and our fun, easy and free Daily Scoop multi-cultural nutrition education program!
Beans are cool for so many reasons… they’re versatile, economical, multi-cultural, a superfood and a super green protein!
*Currently, beans (including tofu & bean burgers) are the allowable whole food, plant-based meat-alternate protein in the National School Lunch Program.
