Fourteen Plainview-Old Bethpage Central School District’s John F. Kennedy High School students recently learned how to cook a healthy snack — vegetable quesadillas. A nutritional expert provided the students with an interactive cooking demonstration with a variety of healthy ingredients, and answered several nutrition-based questions. The students also learned how to read nutrition labels and understand the nutrient breakdown of ingredients.
The students are part of the Healthy Hawks initiative, an after-school club that promotes health and wellness activities.
