Who says you can’t eat healthy and enjoy it? Students of Delap Elementary School were in for a week long treat, a nutritious treat that is. DES students learned about food nutrition such as what food is considered healthy, what food causes diabetes, how much fat is found in one ramen ichiban, coco tuna, and corned beef. Students got a glimpse of how much sugar is contained in a soda and orange juice. Towards the end of the week, students cooked taro mixed with vegetables, made healthy banana shakes, and got a taste of Wellness’ soup. Yum!
