Professor Pea Broccoli Shelton & Mr. Figpin Carrot Tops
As some of you all know, my daughter, Gabby
, attends Metro Christian Academy
in Tulsa, OK. Metro is a Pre-K thru 12th grade school that's aim is to educate children in their mind, body & spirit. Although it has been a big financial commitment (sacrifice) for our family, it has also been a tremendous blessing for us, especially for my daughter.
The school actually has a Health Board, of which I am a volunteer (an obvious perfect fit for me). For the last 3 years our group has done all sorts of activities to bring awareness to the student body, faculty and parents regarding ways to integrate more healthful life practices into their lives. We've had lots of fun with it and now everyone at school really looks forward to "Respect Your Body Week," each fall.
For today's elementary school assembly, we flew in a very special guest. Professor Pea Broccoli Shelton from the world renowned and highly esteemed EatYourVeggies University. I felt an instant and uncanny kindred connection with Prof. Shelton and was especially intrigued with her vibrant hair, yet slightly annoyed with her Julia Child-esque voice. I hope you will enjoy the clip and very special thanks to Metro mom & RFR member, Ronda Roberson for filming!
Tomorrow we'll be taking over the lunch room at Metro and serving delicious samples of Green Smoothies to the student body and faculty. We have invited parents to come join their students during lunch so they can gain knowledge on how to add more fruits & veggies into their family's diets by making mouth-watering & highly nutritious green smoothies for their families. In addition to my VitaMix, I'll be packing along my video camera to capture a bit of the action to share with you here at RFR!
