Ruble said she expected some students to be unfamiliar with the pomegranates she brought in, but some students had never eaten a fresh orange -- or even an apple.
I think this is a great initiative, especially if the above is true! I wish we had a program like this when I was younger. All I can remember in our cafeteria was the pizza slices as big as your head, mozzarella cheese sticks, french fries and deliciously evil cookies. We definitely need to start teaching our kids about nutrition and healthy habits...because fat kids make fat adults! I've been both, I should know.

The new season starts Tuesday. I missed the first season but I'm going to watch this year!
