The menu posted by Chartwells on its website called this "warm whole grain waffles with organic yogurt dipping sauce." It also called for a "locally grown peach" and apple juice.
As you can see, the waffle is dressed with yogurt and blueberries, no "dipping sauce" involved. I was told in the cafeteria that this is the same raspberry yogurt served on a fairly regular basis. And as best as I can determine from the package, there is no indication that it is "organic." I'm quite sure it would not be organic, since organic dairy is not at all easy to come by and the second ingredient in this yogurt is cane sugar.
Nevertheless, this is quite a departure from waffles served in the past with a syrup made of high-fructose corn syrup. And how often do you see whole blueberries--one of the planet's healthiest foods--on an elementary school cafeteria tray?(I don't know if they arrived fresh or frozen.) Other than the really high sugar content of the yogurt--more than in Mountain Dew, ounce for ounce--this seems like a genius way to draw kids into healthier options for breakfast.
