Guardian’s Best Recipes of 2019
Through carefully created meal plans, Guardian provides children with delicious and nutritious meals and snacks using fresh ingredients and seasonal produce prepared by our on-site cooks.
In addition to our delicious menus items, our cooks and Educators often host cooking experiences where children are invited to collect ingredients from our herb and vegetable gardens and actively participate in the cooking.
Here, we’ve collected our best recipes shared on the Guardian blog in 2019. Ranging from snacks, lunches and dinners, there’s something for everyone to try at home.
