This article is over school lunchrooms and how children in this country are becoming more and more obese by not eating healthy. Kern Halls is a current school nutritionist at Orange County Public Schools in Florida. Previously she was a manager for Disney World’s restaurants and knows a billion of tips on how to make kids pick healthier lunch options and actually eat them. At a School Nutrition Conference in Denver, Colorado this summer, cafeteria workers were taught different ways to prepare and make lunches that are healthier and more nutritional. They were also told that new changes and rules would be enforced that have not been changed in over fifteen years. New Department of Agriculture rules would ban foods with lots of trans fats from cafeterias, and milk that has been flavored must be fat free. Another change is that schools are going to have “food coaches” or volunteer parents to walk around and give samples of different fruits and vegetables to kids.

Marbled Chocolate Strawberry Bread

  • Nonstick cooking spray


  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour, plus extra for dusting the pan


  • 2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, chopped


  • 1 ½ cups of strawberries


  • 2/3 cup sweetener


  • 1/4 cup canola oil


  • 2 large eggs


  • 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour


  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder


  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda


  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1/2 cup buttermilk


  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Directions


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly mist a 9-by-5-inch metal loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray and dust well with all-purpose flour to cover the pan completely, tapping out the excess.


Put the chocolate in a medium microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high in 30-second intervals, stirring, until melted and smooth, 1 minute to 1 minute 30 seconds. Set aside to cool slightly while preparing the batter.


Combine the strawberries and sugar in a large bowl and mash with a potato masher or fork until mostly smooth with just a few small pieces of strawberry left. Add the oil and eggs and stir until combined. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, mix in flours, the baking powder, baking soda and salt. Stir in the buttermilk and vanilla.


Stir 1 cup batter into the melted chocolate. Fill the loaf pan with half the strawberry batter and then half the chocolate batter. Repeat the layers and gently swirl together using a spoon or knife. Bake until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes.


Cool in the pan 15 minutes, and then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.


Cook's Note: To prepare your loaf pan for baking, you can also use a nonstick spray with flour already in it. Flouring the pan helps the bread rise well and prevents any collapse after it comes out of the oven.
