Taste of the Rainbow
Today we were treated to a special program put on by Aramark (our food service provider for the county). The students were invited to listen to a presentation by the head of the cafeteria.
She discussed the benefits of eating healthy and making good food choices. The more colorful the fruit or vegetable - the healthier it is for you. Then students were treated to a tour of the kitchen. They were able to see the freezers and all the storage areas.
We even were able to see them preparing our lunch for the day.
At the end of the tour, there were trays filled with different kinds of yummy fruits and veggies. We tasted lots of different things such as tomatoes, corn, celery, grapes, blackberries, bananas, apples, oranges, kiwi, and much more.
Ask me what my favorite thing to eat was...then post it on our blog!
