04/20/12 After a week of learning about nutrition, the kindergarten and second grade students at Washington Elementary School have come up with a recipe for delicious and healthy snack bars.

Partnering with Earthworks, the children, teachers and some parents have produced “Discovery Bars,” a snack packed with fruit, nuts, and – surprisingly – beans!  The beans add protein without affecting the taste.

Want to try one?  The children will be making and selling their bars at the Earthworks Market, 701 E Jefferson St, on Saturday, April 21, starting at 9am.  Proceeds will go to the school, and will enable to the children to keep on making the bars.

For more information, call Earthworks at 574.935.4164.
