Healthy Virginians Week
As part of their week long Healthy Virginians celebration, Park Avenue students partook in an extensive taste testing which included foods such as muscadines, hummus and apples dehydrated by their very own office secretary, Mrs. Neighbors. A tasty time was had by all!
This week students took part in fruit tasting with fresh muscadine grapes and a fruit/vegetable juice blend. They also had an opportunity to taste humus (ground chick peas with garlic and canoloa oil) on top of healthy pita chips. At the end of the week, students tasted and compared 1% milk served in plastic or paper cartons.
We hope these tastings will help our children discover new foods as well as foster the habit of trying new things. It is our hope to encourage students to have healthy lifestyles.
