A conversation in a food educator's classroom today:
Educator: "What positive lifestyle changes have you been making since our last time together?"
Student: "I told my mom I needed a blender. You know, to make those fruit smoothies - you know, to eat a rainbow? She got me a magic bullet."
Educator: "That's amazing! Do you use it?"
Student: "Every day. I'm keepin' it tight."
I've been writing curriculum for and advocating for this amazing food education program for 6 months, and today, during a site visit, I actually got to see it in action. For anyone out there who thinks a 15 year old can't make a positive, healthy lifestyle change (and make it seem cool at the same time), think again.
