Encouraging Healthy Eating

Our FUTP 60 committee is encouraging students to eat their fruits and vegetables daily by holding a raffle at the end of each month for students they witness eating fruits and vegetables at lunch. Several students were seen only putting a slice of pizza or the main entree on their trays and not choosing any fruits or vegetables. They must be eating them as well, not sitting on the tray. The amount of fruits and vegetable being consumed has increased and we know that students are attempting to make better choices at lunchtime.
