Fresh Fruits and Vegetable Program

Shawanoe takes part in the USDA's Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program. Every week our students are served a snack consisting of a fruit or vegetable 3 days a week. We serve the snack in the classroom on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.  When the students are enjoying their snack, they are also given education about the fruit or vegetable being eaten. This program is a good way to get 3 extra servings of fruits or vegetables per week, teach kids about the importance of eating a healthy diet consisting of servings of fruits and vegetables and lets them try some new fruits or vegetables that they may have not had before.  I will update this page weekly to let you know what snacks your child will be eating that week.

Here is more information about this program.
