RIO HONDO — Dragon fruit was on the lunch menu today at Rio Hondo Intermediate elementary.

“I think it’s a cool thing for the kids and its something fun,” said Adriana Lippa, the principal at RH Intermediate. “It’s educating them on making the appropriate choice when eating.”

Students were given samples of fruit and vegetables to taste so by the time its on the regular menu when they make it junior high and high school its nothing new for their taste buds.

The entire student body got to eat dragon fruit, blood oranges and rainbow carrots to go along with their regular school lunch.
