Students at Andersen are learning about healthy eating from the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Everyone at school receives a healthy snack every day. This program is showing students how to make good choices about the food they eat. The fresh fruit and vegetables are changing the way we think about snacks. The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Programs delivers small bags of natural snacks for each student. Carrots, pineapple, pumpkin or squash slices, sweet potato pieces and watermelon chunks are just some of the healthy choices we snack on every day. I never thought of snacking on raw cauliflower or pea pods before. We know that those fruits and vegetables keep us healthy and ready to learn.
