Rochester Hy-Vee dietitians Kathy, Kayley and Sara took part in the School Age Child Care (SACC) “I Tried It” event at three different elementary schools on July 31. Each dietitian was assigned to a Rochester elementary school: Ben Franklin, Sunset Terrace and Gage. Each of the schools included approximately 250 students.
During this presentation children used their five senses to learn about a variety of fruits and vegetables. After learning about the produce, they had the opportunity to try each one to see how they taste. Each dietitian brought rainbow baby carrots, cauliflower, jicama, pomegranate seeds and mango. Students were encouraged to try a new fruit or vegetable and received an “I Tried It” sticker.
