PE-Nut is a nutrition and physical education program that is put on through the Kidney Foundation. A representative will be visiting our classroom monthly to teach the children how to make healthy choices. The program incorporates a planned curriculum, food sampling, structured physical activity, books, take home bags, daily health messages, and even school-wide events.

After a discussion about different kinds of healthy goods and healthy activities, Miss Kate invited them to try a "funny face" snack. She gave them a tortilla, beans , and various veggies. They made funny faces with the different foods and then rolled them up and gave it a try. Most of the Kindergarteners put in a brave face and took a bite... they were surprised at how yummy it was!
