      Dos años después del inicio de la pandemia provocada por el Covid 19, el comedor de nuestra escuela Jenaro Aguirre, nuevamente abrió sus puertas para recibir a sus 400 alumnos ofreciéndoles de esta manera la merienda y el almuerzo balanceado al que estaban acostumbrados.

     A lo largo de estos dos años la alimentación de nuestros niños nunca se detuvo; implementamos un sistema para la entrega de bolsas en sus hogares, con comida saludable y balanceada. Gracias al reinicio de las actividades presenciales en el Jenaro, nuestros alumnos ahora reciben una merienda nutritiva a media mañana y un almuerzo balanceado al finalizar la jornada escolar. Estas dos comidas nos permiten garantizar el 50% de los requerimientos nutricionales diarios que necesitan para su sano desarrollo físico y un optimo rendimiento académico.

     Sin descuidar las medidas de bioseguridad, el personal de la cocina prepara diariamente las comidas, vigilando el manejo adecuado de los alimentos para asegurar la higiene en todo el proceso.

     Uno de los objetivos de la FMMLC es que los niños adquieran hábitos alimenticios saludables a través de la educación. Es por ello que para quienes trabajamos en  la escuela Jenaro Aguirre juega un rol fundamental la promoción y aplicación de programas nutricionales que logren modificar conductas alimentarias erróneas; en este  trabajo de formación también incluimos a los representantes.  Nuestro lema: “Educar y prevenir es curar en salud”.

      Para todos nosotros, ver la emoción de nuestros niños al reencontrarse con sus compañeros de clases; sentir que la actividad vuelve a nuestro comedor, dándonos la oportunidad de servirles cada día  un rico y saludable almuerzo en la escuela, en fin, ser testigos de su  sano crecimiento físico e intelectual,  nos llena de entusiasmo para seguir trabajando por ellos y así brindarles un futuro promisorio lleno de oportunidades.

      Two years after the beginning of the pandemic caused by Covid 19, the dining room of our Jenaro Aguirre school reopened its doors to receive its 400 students, offering them the snacks and balanced meals they were used to.

     Throughout these two years, we never stopped feeding the children. We implemented a system for the delivery of bags to their homes, with healthy and balanced food. Thanks to the restart of in-person activities at Jenaro, our students now receive a nutritious mid-morning snack and a balanced lunch at the end of the school day. These two meals allow us to guarantee 50% of the daily nutritional requirements they need for their healthy physical development and optimal academic performance.

     Without neglecting biosecurity measures, the kitchen staff prepares meals daily, monitoring the proper handling of food to ensure hygiene throughout the process.

     One of the FMMLC's objectives is for children to acquire healthy eating habits through education. That is why for those of us who work at the Jenaro Aguirre School, the promotion and development of nutritional programs that manage to modify disordered eating habits plays a fundamental role; in this training work we also include the children's parents or guardians.  Our motto : "To educate and prevent is to cure in  health".

      For all of us, seeing the excitement of our children when they meet their classmates again; feeling that the activity returns to our dining room, giving us the opportunity to serve them every day a delicious and healthy lunch at school, in short, witnessing their healthy physical and intellectual growth, fills us with enthusiasm to continue working for them and thus provide them with a promising future full of opportunities.
