Eat the Alphabet at our Spring Carnival

We set up tables at our carnival to sample fruits and vegetables that were all the same as the letter of the alphabet. They started with A and ended with Z. Some of them had never tasted Beets before or Jicama. It was a great addition to our usual Carnival food and the kids really liked having healthier snacks to be offered to them.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

I think we can make each month focus on a certain few fruits and vegetables and make them the focus to try each month in an effort to get more participation in eating more vegetables especially. Maybe have the students come up with really interesting recipes and the most creative can be actually made in the cafeteria.
