    Fresh Fruits and Vegetables Program (TDA)


    The Fresh Fruit and Vegetable program is an effort by the Texas Department of Agriculture to expand the number of healthy foods that students will eat. This is accomplished by invitation through TDA. Park Village Elementary School qualified for this exciting program and has been hosting it for several years. Each week different fruits and vegetables are tasted by students in the classroom while the classroom teacher interacts with the students about the food's taste, color, and texture while explaining about the food's healthy benefits. Hopefully, the next time they see these foods in their local grocery store, they'll be willing to eat them again.
