Taste Test Days at Hickerson Elementary
Hickerson Elementary continues to strive to be healthy through Fuel Up to Play 60 activities. School Nurse Angela Ridner, has conducted several Taste Test Days at the school. Students get the opportunity to try new, healthy foods that they may not otherwise be exposed to. The students have been able to try various smoothies, olives, hummus, avocado, and dates just to name a few. The children always look forward to Taste Test Days at Hickerson Elementary.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

Students are more open to trying new, healthy foods. They are also more interested in the nutritional value of their food and where it comes from.
