- Access to Healthy Foods
Here at South Fork Elementary every Friday the wellness coordinators go to different classrooms and teach the students about healthy eating. At the end of the lesson, the wellness coordinators show the kids how they can make their own nutritious smoothie with yogurt, low-fat milk, and strawberries! They students love them and like to share things that they like to have in their smoothies including spinach and/or other fruits and vegetables. Along with the nutrition classes, the wellness coordinators also teach other Health classes to fit the needs of the students. We have taught classes on different subjects such as hand washing, germs, and dental hygiene.
