Pay attention, do your homework, eat your vegetables is good advice fourth-graders hear from their parents all the time. However, when the message is incorporated into a night of fun amongst family and friends, the results can be amazing.

The fourth-grade students of Poland Union Elementary School spent Thursday, Jan. 26 celebrating Family Health Night, where the words of two guest speakers drew them in, they took part in a little healthy eating trivia courtesy of Turning Technologies audience response system, and were treated to a mouthwatering array of fresh fruits and vegetables provided by Sirna and Sons Produce.

Without even realizing, with the support of school and family, Union students took ingested a heaping serving of useful information on ways to incorporate healthy habits into their days.
