Presumpscot Students Taste Test Healthy Snacks
Posted on 12/23/2014

One day a month, Garrick Brown, registered dietitian with Healthy Portland, brings his Pick A Better Snack & Act program to Beth Linevitch’s and Natasha Vandergrift-Martinez's second grade classrooms at Presumpscot Elementary School.

Lessons are designed to present nutrition information on a wide variety of fruits and vegetables in an effort to promote healthy food choices. Each lesson begins with a minute of movement and physical activity.  Each child has the opportunity to taste a fruit and/or vegetable as well.

During the recent November lesson students were able to taste cranberries in three different forms; raw, juice and dried. October featured radishes.
