Triton Elementary School is proud to have Mrs. Kathe Beehler from the Purdue Marshall County Extension Office join all third grade classrooms weekly to present the “My Plate” program. Mrs. Beehler has been trained to instruct students in nutrition, to promote healthy eating choices ,and activity levels. Students not only learn about being active and healthy foods, but they also learn surprising facts about some of their favorite munchies that they may have not considered before.
Over the course of this six week program, a special “healthy” snack alternative is given to students. The main goals of these presentations are to help children gain knowledge about how to select foods that help bodies and minds to grow and be strong, along with allowing us to be healthy while functioning at our best. We appreciate Mrs. Beehler’s efforts to help Triton kids be their best!
