10th Street students learn about healthy snacking
February 19. 2013 1:06AM
The students from Mrs. Cefalo‚??s and Mrs. Molino‚??s classes learned that dairy foods supply essential nutrients for strong bones and teeth.
They learned that low-fat cheese can be a healthy and satisfactory snack. Students who are lactose intolerant or allergic to dairy learned that there are other ways to get enough calcium, vitamin D and protein in their diet, through lactose-free products, supplements or other food choices. As a culminating experience, the students created creatures with low-fat cheese and pretzel sticks.
They had a great time eating their works of art.
