On March 9 The Sydney Markets successful program Fresh for Kids attended the Annual Food Exhibition and Training Day.
Over 400 Canteen Managers and workers, and the people who support them, descended on the Southee Complex at Sydney Olympic Park sampling many Fresh for Kids recipe ideas which feature in our Canteen Fresh Newsletters.
Recipes that were sampled throughout the day included Kiwifruit Cups (Term 3 2009), Crunchy Recess Fruit Salad consisting of low fat vanilla yoghurt, muesli, chopped rockmelon, strawberries, Valencia oranges, pineapple and blueberries (Term 4 2009) Easy Breakfast Ideas which consisted of oats, honey, bananas and strawberries (Term 1 2010), and our Banana Menu Ideas consisting of low fat custard, chopped bananas with a sprinkle of cinnamon (Term 2 2010).
The Fresh for Kids double stand also contained information on the website, Canteen Fresh, Sydney Markets seasonal guides, canteen campaign, Fresh for Kids promotional material and general Fresh for Kids information.
This year the cooking demonstrations were the best yet. Staged in the main hall, the cooking stadium was alive with activity. Fresh for Kids sponsored Janelle Bloom, best known for her work on the popular cooking show Ready Steady Cook, kicked off the demos pleasing the crowd with her delicious rice paper rolls and tzatziki dip with veggie sticks which feature in the Canteen Fresh Term 1 2010 edition.
