I cooked Whole Grain Pancakes for the students and served them with Maple Syrup made by the students from Sugar Maples tapped at their school!
Chartwells Resident Dietitian for Farmington Public Schools Aliza Stern RD spoke about Whole Grains.
Maple Sugar Farmer Kay Carroll from Brookside Farm II in Litchfield spoke to the students about the Maple Syrup production process and explain and tasted the four different grades of Maple Syrup with the students.
