Central Cougars Learn about New Fruits and Vegetables
- Angela Kivett, Central Elementary School

When Central Elementary's Fuel Up to Play 60 team meets for their meeting, they get an opportunity to try a new fruit or vegetable. The students learn about the new fruit/vegetable, sample it, write what they thought about it, and take that information back to their class to share. There is a bulletin board dedicated to Fuel Up to Play 60, and each month the item sampled is displayed for the school to see with pictures, information, and the students' thoughts on what they tried. It is a great learning experience for the whole school. It promotes students to try new items, even if they look strange or have a unique name. Students are learning that there is more to snacking and trying new things is fun!
