Student’s at Juniper School participated in fun outdoor activities, and snacked on healthy fruits and vegetables yesterday during their Nutrition Olympics event. Employees from the UC CalFresh Program were on campus to encourage eating and living healthy. Older students help run the games and even dressed up in veggie/fruit outfits.
Eating a good diet is important to staying healthy. UC CalFresh Nutrition Education Program helps children and adults choose a healthy lifestyle by encouraging good food habits and decision making skills.
