The first-graders at Stewart Elementary are into week four of the Pick a Better Snack program delivered by Washington County Extension/4-H. Tuesday, Feb. 13, they enjoyed spinach salad and learning how those dark-colored fruits and vegetables pack a powerful punch of nutrients. Each week students assist handing out the snack, practicing safe food handling. Jace Kinzenbaw, son of Jamie and Jermey Kinzenbaw, handed out spinach to his classmates in Mrs. Rhiannon Long?s first-grade classroom. Students also worked together to sort foods into the correct food groups on the Healthy MyPlate.
