Chartwells Mood Boost Activity at Lunch

Ask your child about our Mood Boost presentation from Chartwells today.  We tasted Kale Slaw with Jicama.  Kale is a great tasting dark leafy green that does it all.  Its nutrients provide strength to your body and mind.  The character that goes with Kale is pink and confident.  The kids have stickers and many really liked it.
