In accordance with “Eat the Rainbow” week, which promotes healthy eating habits throughout schools, second-grade students at Babylon Elementary School were recently visited by Chef Marianne to learn important eating habits.

During the “Chefs Move to Schools” program, the students were asked to take part in an activity which had them matching up fruits and vegetables with their respective colors, and learned about some new varieties along the way.  

Additionally, the students learned about the different nutrients that each item offered and were able to sample beet hummus, which they highly enjoyed.

According to the official Chefs Move to Schools website, the initiative is aimed at combating childhood obesity, educating children about food and to show them that healthy eating can be fun.
