Students Earn Their Passports to Nutrition

Recently, Stop & Shop of East Hartford ,volunteered at Robert J. O'Brien STEM Academy. Associates introduced students to nutrition facts through their Passport to Nutrition program. The program focuses on: what nutrients are, MyPlate and the 5 food groups, the importance of exercise and staying hydrated, the role of the senses in tasting food, how to read food labels, and portion control.

The children sampled low sodium cheese, whole wheat bread, apple slices, and organic cereal and had the opportunity to pet a lobster. They also received an activity book, some fruit, a juice box and a frisbee to take home.

Thank you Stop & Shop for sharing healthy eating habits and physical activity with the next generation!
