Students in Mrs. Dennis‚??s third-grade health classes at Tenth Street Elementary School participated in a nutrition activity to promote healthy snacking. 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. Mr. Pollard is the building Principal at Tenth Street Elementary School.
