Cajun Cuisine Offers Better Health Value for Kids

In an effort to temper down the spoonfuls of sodium and fat that describe most American school lunches, the National Food Service Management Institute is educating administrators and families about the way regional cooking, like Cajun cuisine, can improve the health of schoolchildren.

Through webinars, online cooking shows, and a score of other free educational material, the NFSMI is taking lessons from celebrity chefs like Emeril Lagasse to get their message out.

Lagasse, primarily a Cajun chef, coined the phrase “New New Orleans cooking” on the Food Network, and is known for using bold seasoning and spices that don’t rely on the sugar, salt, or butter for which cafeteria food is known.

Chef Lagasse advocates fresh herbs like parsley, cayenne pepper, thyme, and garlic. Cajun cuisine’s trio of staple ingredients, bell peppers, onions, and celery, also helps pack recipes with flavor, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories. Recipes using fresh ingredients like these versus canned veggies and sodium-rich foods are far superior in health value.

The Department of Agriculture is joining the NFSMI to introduce simple yet healthy Cajun dishes into school cafeterias nationwide. They suggest recipes like Turkey and Sausage Gumbo, Baked Cajun Catfish with U.S. Farm-Raised Catfish, Okra with Tomatoes and Bread Pudding.
