Stewart: Pick a Better Snack Program PDF Print E-mail

Healthy fruit/ vegetable snacks have invaded the Stewart Elementary first grade classrooms again this year through the Pick a Better Snack program delivered by Washington County Extension. This program is running in conjunction with Live Healthy Iowa and promoting a Food of the Week in the Washington community. This week each grocery story is running specials on the Food of the Week – apples. This program is designed to motive children to eat more fruits/ vegetables in meals and snacks and to be more physically active. Each week Amy Green, 4-H/youth coordinator, visits first and second grade classrooms to talk about healthy snacks, making healthy choices and they always get to sample a particular fruit or vegetable of the day. Each week the students are reminded to be brave and try new things – including healthy fruits/ vegetables. For week one, the 101 Stewart first graders had a taste test with Granny Smith & Pink Lady Apples. Pink Ladies were voted most popular by Stewart Elementary first grade students. The Pick a Better Snack program is supported by a grant from the Washington County Riverboat Foundation, Fareway, Noon Kiwanis and Optimists. If you have any questions about the Pick a Better Snack program or would like to volunteer, please call the Washington County Extension Office at 319-653-4811. Pictured here are students from Tracy Strabala's first grade classroom displaying 11 varieties of apples: Allan F, Mackenzie M, Peggy M and Claire Robinson.
