TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Students at a Tippecanoe County school learned how farm food can keep them healthy.
This is the first year for Farm to School Day at Mintonye Elementary. Students have spent the past several weeks learning about healthy choices and how farms get them their food.
Students also tried some locally grown fruits and veggies as well as bread and cheese.
Mintonye Principal Rob Skaggs says students have really enjoyed the week.
"Eating is a part of their lives and always has been," Skaggs said.
"Just to watch them with the different activities the teachers have had them doing, they feel capable and successful. Of course, that's what we want with any curriculum."
This same program has been used in other schools across the state and has seen great benefits including less television time from students.
