The students used crayons to draw a healthy meal on paper plates and used colored paper inside a plastic cup to note their healthy beverage juice. I observed one iced tea, one chocolate milk, a few apple and orange juices and the rest were white milk.
The students in Ms. Vontz's class made a fresh salsa with plum tomatoes, green peppers, onions & cilantro. The colors were wonderful and the taste was top notch!
Ms. Guerra's class was making vegetarian burritos with refried beans, broccoli slaw, salsa and sour cream on a whole wheat tortilla, yummy!

Ms. Nathman's students made banana sushi: whole wheat tortilla with peanut butter spread then and sliced bananas. The tortilla was then rolled up and sliced to resemble sushi.
The students are growing lettuce and tomatoes in bright orange buckets, the lettuce is flourishing and will taste even better when the students can sample it from their new salad bar!
When Principal Karen Lott came to visit the student chef served her fresh salsa, showed off the bucket garden and gave Ms. Lott a tour of the worm compost box.
In June the 2nd grade class will be visited by a film crew from http://www.babble.com/ to show off what they are doing in relation to making healthy choices.
This is another great example of the great things happening in our schools. Kudos to the Brennan-Rogers School Community for embracing healthy change!
