What's Happening at Middletown City Schools
Sodexo 2015 Future Chef Challenge

While healthy eating can be a challenge for kids and parents, elementary school students at Middletown City School District used their creativity and culinary skills to make healthy, after-school snacks in Sodexo’s 2015 Future Chefs Challenge. The national initiative, which is in its fifth year, was created to get students thinking about making healthy food choices while also encouraging them to get active and creative in the kitchen. Middletown City School District students joined over 2,500 other students representing over 1,000 Sodexo-served school sites in 29 states nationally in this fun and educational challenge.

Locally, over 80 elementary school students submitted healthy, after-school snack recipes and the seven best were selected to participate in the district-wide finals event on March 25th. Finalists prepared and presented their creations before being assessed on criteria including originality, taste, ease of presentation, kid friendliness and use of healthy ingredients. Middletown City Schools joined approximately 230 other school districts across the country holding Future Chefs events throughout February and March.

NaKayla Martin, a 5th grader at Creekview Elementary School won this year’s district competition with her recipe for the snack, Baby Ladybugs. NaKayla’s recipe was also selected as one of 40 regional finalists. Congratulations Nakayla!
