Chadwick Elementary Takes a Food Power Adventure


In honor of National Nutrition Month and Heart Health, Chadwick Elementary School students had the opportunity to see the popular traveling exhibit, Food Power Adventure.

The exhibit allowed kindergarten through fifth grade students to learn about their bodies, how food travels through it, and how to keep their hands clean. FFA members and other high school students presented the information.

After the presentation, the Chadwick PTO provided healthy rainbow-colored fruits and vegetables for snacks, and Hiland Dairy donated Greek yogurt so the students could enjoy a healthy snack before they went back to class.

Special education teacher Mrs. Jacklyn Aldrich helped organize the event. She said, “We want students to know that it’s just as easy to buy yogurt or celery as to pick up a bag of chips.”
