Springfield Head Start students have been participating in a nutrition series this year led by LSU AgCenter Area Nutrition Agent Layne Langley.
The children met Organ Andy and Organ Annie. The duo “house” the OrganWise Guys — Hardy Heart, Calci M. Bone, Sid & Kid the Kidney Brothers, Windy the Lungs, Peri Stolic, Sir Rebrum and Madame Muscle — who help children understand healthy behaviors.
Stories shared during the program include “School Days, Here We Come” and “I Think I Forgot Something.” The “I Think” lesson, during which the children snacked on apple slices, focused on the importance of breakfast.
