Healthy Food Fair

This year, a Healthy Food Committee was created at Ulluriaq School.  The committee planned many events but the BIGGEST one was the Healthy Food Fair.  Every homeroom class was ask to select and prepare a healthy food or snack to share.  On Wednesday, March 26 afternoon each student had the opportunity to sample 7 healthy foods of their choice from the many choice food stations.  Food brought smiles and happy bellies.  Students and teachers enjoyed this event and are talking about making this a yearly Ulluriaq event.  Learning more about healthy foods is the beginning of a healthier body and mind.  Check out the photos and witness the joy for yourself.  :)

Proudly presented by the Health Committee,

Anne, Jessica, Ella and Heather
