Over 1,000 students funnel through the lunch room at Wagner Schools each day.  Nutritious meals are planned and fresh vegetables and salads are prepared.   That’s a lot of carrot sticks each day.  On top of it all, literally, is the ranch dressing consumption.

Salad dressings are a tasty condiment and Ranch is favored for greens and as a dip for vegetables.  Commercial varieties can be high in sodium and calories.  Wagner’s kitchen staff have created a version that meets nutritional guidelines.  Plus, it’s tasty.
