School uses smoothie bar to get kids to eat more fresh produce

Edgewood Elementary School, in Baltimore, has turned one of its classrooms into a smoothie bar to improve students' eating habits.

BALTIMORE—One Baltimore elementary school has found a clever way of getting its students to eat more fresh produce — by hiding them in plain sight.

Edgewood Elementary School has turned one of its classrooms into a smoothie bar where students can select a variety of fruits and vegetables and watch them disappear into icy blended drinks.

“Today we open up our Super Duper Smooth Energy Center. You kids ready to get some energy?” Principal Kim Sollers recently asked a group of students.
