Sudduth Students Eat Their Way to Good Health

With visions of rainbows in their heads, some students at Sudduth Elementary School learned to paint and eat a delicious and nutritious snack. 

The Mississippi University for Women Culinary Arts Institute introduced students to fresh fruits and vegetables that feature the colors of a rainbow during a food tasting demo at their school.  The students created a rainbow on a stick, which is actually a fruit kebob, and used a pastry brush, to paint the fruit with vanilla yogurt and then rolled their special treat in granola.  The students also stirred together a secret spice mix to enjoy with fresh vegetables. 

The special demonstration offered to students at Sudduth Elementary School is funded through a grant from MUW’s Project CHEW and Blue Cross Blue Shield’s Passport to Wellness program.
