Healthy Living


The Lee County Schools Healthy Living Lab came to Beach Elementary recently, sharing ideas on nutrition, healthy eating habits, serving sizes and sampling healthy foods. Mary Ann Bucceroni, Lee County Schools Food & Nutrition Instructor led the 4th and 5th graders in a game of Nutrition Jeopardy before showing them how to create a garnish ‘pig’ out of a lemon that they were then able to take home, but not before sampling some Italian green beans that 4th grade teacher Ms. Fraley cooked just for them. Here some students hold up their garnish with Mary Ann Bucceroni in the background.
