Eat Around the Rainbow
- Gail Percle, Isabel Pierce Sem Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Eat Around the Rainbow was a new event this year held at Sem Elementary. The PTA partnered with the café to prepare and serve new fruits and vegetables to the students. Some examples include: jicama, sugar snap peas, peppers, grapes, grapefruit and mango. The presentation was very colorful to attract the students and encourage them to try something new. In PE class, many of the students talked about trying jicama and mango for the very first time. These students said they wanted to eat it more often because they loved it so much. Kids just need to have the opportunity to make healthier choices and many times they surprise us!
