Kids’ Taste Test – Woodbury Elementary

“I love it, the meat is so juicy, the vegetables are fresh, and just overall delicious. Turkey burger is better than regular cafeteria food!” – One of our food critics from the 4th through 6th grade category

The results are in!

We had a blast at our first Kids’ Taste Test event at Woodbury Elementary last week. We let the children sample some of our classics: our Stuffed Turkey Burger, Asian Chicken and Quinoa Salad, Oven Fried Chicken With Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans, Homemade Granola Bars, Steak Quesadilla With Grilled Onions and Peppers, and our Veggie Lunch Wraps.
