A Taste of Health

Students Sample Nutritious Foods

In conjunction with National Nutrition Month, and in an effort to educate students on the new FDA nutrition recommendations, John F. Kennedy Intermediate School hosted a Healthy Snack Festival. Students visited stations set up throughout the cafeteria that featured visual displays and taste samples representing the new food plate in all of the food groups. Students received a sample of grains, fruits and vegetables and accompanying literature on healthy eating.

The district’s food service provider, Aramark, sponsored the event, which was held at all of the primary schools.
