You Want Me To Eat What?!

The YES! Summer Program continued this week with a taste test of unusual looking fruits. TreesNC in collaboration with the Central Boys & Girls Club organized a program where kids could sample a variety of fruits. We had a variety of choices including: fruit juices, honeydew melon, kiwi, papaya, and jicama. This activity provided an exciting opportunity to discuss the many ways we can maximize our daily fruit and vegetable intake. 

"This was an incredible experience! We all enjoyed watching each other's reaction to tasting new fruits and vegetables. I had to taste some of the unusual looking fruits first before they would venture out of their comfort zones to try them, but, ultimately, everyone had a great time," said TreesNC intern Blakely Bell.
