Food for Thought: St. Paddy’s Treat


By Patti Rigby, Carbon School District Nutritional Director 

Carbon students love engaging in holiday activities! Wearing green on St Patrick’s Day increases anticipation, participation and celebration of this fun-filled holiday. Our wonderful lunch lads and ladies made a special dessert to let the students know they are “The pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!”

Jell-o is a weekly favorite but this time, rainbow belt candy and golden sprinkles added the leprechaun magic with only 25 additional calories toward the maximum allowed by the USDA. At school lunch, we treat treats as treats because we know the key to healthy, happy living is moderation!
