Students in Jenna Pluta’s elementary Health and Wellness class are geared up for their weekly visit with Marta Blanco, a nutritionist from Cornell Cooperative Extension. Her fun and healthy interactive lessons focus on nutritional values and activities, such as decorating clementines and creating mini “pumpkins” out of them. “Many of the students have worked with Ms. Blanco in the past so they love when she comes to visit,” said Pluta. “It is definitely an enthusiastic and welcomed visit.”
