New From the Commons

Beginning in September, we will be offering two kinds of new “dishes” in the Commons. First, we are getting brand new chinaware that will be bright and appealing. Even more important,the lunch options being served on our new plates will continue our trend toward more locally sourced foods with sustainable practices: produce from farms in New York State, and more fresh fish.

In an effort to reduce refined sugar and flour, we will replacing desserts with delicious new fruit-based treats such as cobblers, tarts and smoothies, while integrating more whole grains into the regular menu wherever possible.

Elisa Zied, BWL parent, nutritionist and published author of many books about diet and nutrition, commented: “As a parent and registered dietician, I’m thrilled that BWL is incorporating more fish, whole grains, and fruit—foods that,unfortunately, tend to lack in our children’s diets.”
