Healthy Snacks, Healthy Smiles, Healthy You!

Thank you to all classrooms who participated in the school dental-nutrition campaign and joined us in celebrating healthy snacks and healthy smiles. You helped to make the campaign possible!
 
Over 43 classrooms took part in campaign activities – exploring, drawing, and snapping creative photos as they learned more about healthy eating for strong and healthy teeth and bodies.
 
Snack, Smile, Snap!
Participating classes snapped pictures of themselves choosing healthy lunch and snack items. Photos from the contest were incorporated into a photos mosaic to help promote and celebrate the message of healthy foods for healthy teeth and bodies.

*The mosaic is best viewed with the following browser types:

Due to mosaic file size, full resolution images may take a few moments to be clearly viewed after the zoom option has been selected.
