In March, students receiving nutrition education from UC CalFresh were able to try a juicy, tart grapefruit! For many students, it was their first time trying it, and we received a lot of feedback from them. Mrs. Stearns' transitional kindergarten class at Easterby Elementary School reflected on their tasting by turning it into art. Take a look at their creative artwork and opinions in the pictures below!
"I like it because it has seeds."
"I don't like it because it has the white part I don't like."
"I like grapefruit because it is sour."
As we can see from their artwork, grapefruits were a hit with some students, while others weren't a big fan. Whether students liked it or not, it's wonderful to see that they were all willing to try it! Teaching children to be open to new foods is such an important part of creating a healthy diet, and Mrs. Stearns' kiddos are off to a great start!
