Students and staff at Windham High School will have the opportunity to dine on some not-so-typical school lunch fare on Tuesday, May 24th when the cafeteria will host a guest chef, Erin Dow, Expert Chef for the Guiding Stars Licensing Company. As a part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Chefs Move to Schools Program, Chef Erin will come to the school to prepare a healthy entrée, featuring a Guiding Stars recipe, Spicy Fish Tacos with Chipotle Sour Cream and Mango Salsa, along with Baked Tortilla Chips and Garlic-Lime Black Bean and Avocado Guacamole. This meal, which earns two stars through the Guiding Stars nutrition navigation system, will feature local fish from Raymond’s Fisherman’s Catch. The meal will also incorporate the new salad bar, with fresh vegetables for taco topping and guacamole dipping, which the school recently received through a grant from Whole Foods. The high school implemented the Guiding Stars system into the cafeteria last year as a part of the Carol M. White Physical Education Program (PEP) grant, which aims to help students participate in more physical activity and make more nutritious food choices. Guiding Stars helps students to identify the healthiest options by rating items available in the cafeteria and labeling products that receive one (good), two (better), and three (best) stars.
