Cool Bean of the Month & Cultural Connection: Lentils & India, the Festival of Colors

Cool Bean Recipe:  Vegetable Curry Soup with Lentils

​​​​The Daily Scoop is an excellent way for schools and teachers to infuse “bites” of easy-to-digest nutrition education into each school day. The monthly recipes (in English and Spanish) are a great tool to extend this information out to families, and link what the students hear at school with what they taste at home!  Deirdre Kleske, San Diego County Childhood Obesity Initiative

Daily Scoop, Spring

​​​I LOVE the Daily Scoop! Each morning one of my students gets to read the message for that day on "good nutrition news." It's an important beginning to each day. 

Leslie Engel, Elementary Teacher, Oceanside, CA

April Issue

Harvest of the Month: Asparagus (Vitamin E) & Kiwifruit (Vitamin C)

Cool Bean of the Month & Cultural Connection: Cool Beans from Around Planet Earth!

Cool Bean Recipe:  Cool & Green Turtle Bean Wrap (with tropical fruit)

The Daily Scoop has been a fantastic resource for our nutrition education programs across the district.  It easily fits into our Harvest of the Month program, and gives teachers another avenue to connect students with nutrition information.  I love how the tips include a cultural and environmental perspective in addition to the more science-based nutrition tips.  Amy Haessly, Nutrition Specialist, Vista USD

May Issue

Harvest of the Month:   Avocado (healthy fats) & Carrots (Vitamin A)

Cool Bean of the Month & Cultural Connection: Mexico & Cinco de Mayo/Mexican Pride

Cool Bean Recipe: Lean & Green Fiesta Taco Salad / Wrap. 

The Daily Scoop is filled with fun kid-friendly health messages that spiral and build on each other over the course of the month. By making this part of our morning routine, my students have started to own the vocabulary to express how and why they should fill their plates with healthy fruits, vegetables and "cool beans!"   Hilary Rogers, Elementary Teacher, Vista, CA
