Food for Thought: Poke Mondays!


By Patti Rigby, Carbon School District Nutritional Director

The first Monday of the month is again designated as Poke Monday. Each elementary student participating in school lunch will be given a Pokemon card.

Our first Poke Monday provided students with delicious, juicy oranges. We serve oranges that are grown in the U.S. They are a popular fruit because they are naturally sweet, low in calories and full of nutrients. Going into cold and flu season, they are particularly important as a great source of Vitamin C.

Eating an orange with lunch provides more than 100% of the recommended Vitamin C needs for the day. Poke Mondays are fun and healthy!
