This year one of the most interesting promotions which happens each day is the "Let's Move and Eat Healthy" !! The national grant provides fresh fruit and vegetables daily to be distributed each day at break. It's been fun to see the students' reaction to unusual examples of fruit and vegetables. We also have learned about the countries of origin and even learned how to cook by developing recipes.
