Can fresh fruits or vegetables be purchased with FFVP funds and prepared as part of a cooking demonstration and served to children in a slaw, salad or other dishes?

Answer: 

Fresh (not canned, frozen, dried or otherwise processed) vegetables that are cooked, must be limited to once-a-week and must always include a nutrition education lesson related to the prepared item. Schools may not claim any additional ingredients that are part of the cooked fresh vegetable dish that are not a fresh fruit or vegetable.
