We are pleased to announce the return of our FRESH FRUIT AND VEGGIE PROGRAM for the 2018-2019 school year. This is a federal grant our school has applied and been approved for to increase our children's knowledge of fruits and veggies from around the world. David Moyer, our new Chef will be the coordinator for this program this year!
Not only does this program provide a fresh veggie or fruit each day for the children to taste but also some information about the daily choice. Sometimes even a puzzle or coloring sheet with information and activities surrounding the daily veggie or fruit.
We do our best to keep the fruit or veggie as close to it's original state as we can. We do not cook it unless it cannot be eaten raw. As for dressings or dips, we avoid those too. We want the kiddos to see and taste exactly what is offered.We also include a 'whole' piece of whatever is being served that day. If it is honeydew melon, we will provide a whole or half melon for the children to explore with their eyes and hands.
Ask your child about the morning Fresh Fruit of Veggie Choice and see what interesting things they have to say!
