What is Asparagus?
- Gloria Guillen, Alta Vista Elementary School
- Access to Healthy Foods
Asparagus was introduced for lunch. Many kids have never heard of the vegetable. We made posters and informed them of the many vitamins in asparagus. We picked another lunch day and introduced it again. This time, if the students ate it, they got "free dress" the next day. What a hit. Many tried it for the first time. Many did like it. It was great introducing something new.
