Prairie View Elementary Celebrates Local Farmers
Many of our students don't get to enjoy fresh vegetables from our local farmers at home, so we bring veggies to lunch for them!! We encourage students to try all kinds of fresh veggies, either plain or with low-fat dressings. One day we steam some of the vegetables so if students don't like raw veggies, they can eat them steamed with different no salt seasonings. Its fun to try different seasonings on them.

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

We plan to continue to purchase fresh veggies locally when they are in season. Spice stations are always fun to season the veggies when they are steamed. We also mix together and come up with some crazy dressing and dipping sauces for the fresh veggies.
