On Nov. 16, Lisa Chiavaroli's second-grade class at Hoover Elementary did a tasting of yellow, orange, and red peppers, and tried two new fruits: pomegranates and golden berries.

Students compared the flavors of the peppers and voted on which new foods they liked best as part of their participation in the Independent Health-sponsored Fitness for Kids Challenge to strive for five servings of fruits and/or vegetables each day in the month of November.

Independent Health Foundation donated Wegman's gift cards for educators to provide the fruits and vegetables for students.
