In an interesting turn of events today more entrees were eaten than animal crackers. Animal crackers have been served 3 times in the last week. This is a common menu choice because they are fortified with iron and this is a way to satisfy the USDA requirement with a food item that kids will readily eat. I must admit that I have tasted the Kolaches when I attended one of the First Class Breakfast informational sessions and they are really pretty good. They are baked from scratch in the HISD Food Service Facility and made with whole grain flour. I actually saw them being mixed, assembled and baked when I toured with a group last week. Unfortunately, they are the ONLY breakfast item that contains pork, but there is a committment to provide a no-pork-kolache for breakfast next year.
