Spring INTRO/start issue is an introduction issue if you're starting the program in March, April or May. This issue helps to establish key concepts such as Harvest of the Month, Cool Bean of the Month and eating in season.
Harvests of the Month: Spinach (Vitamin K) & Berries (phytonutrients)
Cool Bean of the Month & Cultural Connection: Lentils & India, the Festival of Colors
Health Campaign: National Nutrition Month
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!

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.

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
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!"
