Cheers to the Community Healthcare Network in East Williamsburg for piloting a nutrition program for students at PS 250. It consisted of seven 30-minute nutrition classes designed to help children make good food choices of their own at an early age.

The third graders learned basic concepts about food groups and portion sizes, and received practical tips on how to read labels and make a healthy breakfast.

Principal Norma Barnes encouraged the organization to plan an outreach effort to additional schools in the communities served, while nutritionist Maria Aguero-Martinez applauded the conscious-raising.

“Well-nourished and smart-food students are better learners,” said Aguero-Martinez. “I think programs like these are important to raise awareness to prevent disease and obesity in our city.”

Standing O wishes the students good eats.

PS 250 [108 Montrose Ave., and Manhattan Avenue in Williamsburg, (718) 384–0889].
