The students who were eating the school lunch at Padonia International Elementary School Oct. 10 were happy — mozzarella dippers were on the menu, a favorite for many first graders, who were dining in the school's cafeteria.
The breadsticks stuffed with mozzarella have 300 calories per serving, 12 grams of fat, 32 grams of carbohydrates and 16 grams of protein. Six-year-old Colin Nagy said he likes them best because they are cheesy.
Mozzarella dippers are a long-standing school lunch option in Maryland schools. But in the four years she's worked in Padonia's cafeteria, Person-in-Charge Tammy Miller-Delosier, says she has seen more options added to the menu.
