The ABC’s of Healthy Eating

Off the top of your head, can you name a fruit or vegetable beginning with each letter of the alphabet?

The Early Learning Kindergarten class at Nobel School now has a complete edible alphabet! The class has been focusing on healthy eating over the past few months. Students, with the help of their families, were challenged to find fruit and vegetables to represent each letter of the alphabet. Each student was assigned a letter, and brought in a fruit or veggie to match.

The ELK class invited a local photographer (thank you Sue Ostertag!) to visit and work with students to take photos of each fruit or vegetable. The best photo of each fruit or veggie was compiled into a poster, the ABC Healthy Eating. Each student received a copy of the poster to take home, and the poster has been shared with several community partners.

All the fruits and veggies brought in by students was used to make soup and fruit salad for the class to share and enjoy. Students prepared the meal as a class with a team of parents who volunteered to help cook. The healthy lunch was served to the group restaurant style, with place settings arranged on tables. The students and parents alike noted the impression left by the learning experience.

Several extra ABC Posters remain, if your family or community group is interested in obtaining one for display please contact Debbie Newton at Nobel School.
