A healthy taste

'FOODPLAY' show, fair dish on nutrition


The Andover Townsman

---- — Students got a real sampling of healthy eating and exercise last week when the school district’s Nutrition and Health Education departments hosted a night of food fun.

The event, held at West Elementary School, featured a performance of “FOODPLAY,” an award-winning, interactive presentation built around the theme of nutrition and filled with music, magic, juggling and more.

It was followed by a nutrition and fitness expo of sorts that included food-testing stations and physical activities aimed at reinforcing the importance of a healthy lifestyle.
