Calf to Visit Seattle Schools
The Washington State Dairy Princess and a baby calf are visiting Seattle elementary schools this week to share the story of dairy’s farm-to-table journey and the benefits of dairy and calcium for children’s growing bodies.
The visit is part of the Washington Grown Harvest of the Month program, designed to engage students in a variety of settings where nutrition education can have the biggest impact -- the classroom, cafeteria and home. Each month, a Washington-grown item will be showcased; in February, the highlight is on dairy products.
When and where:
Tuesday, Feb. 14 Roxhill Elementary, 9430 30th Ave. S.W. 98126
Wednesday, Feb. 15 Greenwood Elementary, 144 N.W. 80th 98117
Thursday, Feb. 16th, Montlake Elementary, 2409 22nd Ave East
All appearances will be in the cafeteria from 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Why: This program is offered through a Centers for Disease Control and Communities Putting Prevention to Work grant, secured by Seattle Public Schools. Seattle Schools promotes healthy eating and active living through a collaboration between nutrition services, health education, physical education and risk management departments.
A baby calf AND a Dairy Princess. Sounds good and I'm sure the kids will get a real kick out of this.
