From the Nutrition Committee:
Recently our students participated in a Friday Taste It! Our featured food was Naked Green Machine juice! This wonderful green juice was distributed to all of our students. Please take a moment to talk with your child about their impressions of the juice! Naked Green Machine juice is a mixture of fruits and vegetables, including apple, banana, kiwi, pineapple, spinach, broccoli and wheat grass!
We welcome parent involvement and feedback. If you are interested in being involved with the Friday Taste It’s, please contact Cynthia Chan at firstname.lastname@example.org
