A Message from Pomptonian
Dear Parents: As the seasons change so does the local fruit and vegetable of the month. Different weather patterns allow for a different variety of produce to be grown. As we move deeper into fall and the weather becomes colder, root vegetables will be offered. This month we will be enjoying
McIntosh Apples from Yonder Fruit Farm and Butternut Squash from Dagele Brothers Produce as part of Pomptonian's Local Farm-Tray-Program. The butternut squash will be showcased as part of the
Holiday Luncheon on December 18!
An interesting fact, bananas receive all the attention when it comes to potassium, but it is important not to forget about our friend, Butternut Squash. Butternut Squash is a powerhouse when it comes to potassium, containing 582 mg, more than the amount available in a banana. McIntosh Apples, on the other hand, are hard to forget-they are a classic. Ever heard the phrase, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away?" Specifically, McIntosh Apples, contain dietary fiber known as pectic, which supports a healthy digestive system by feeding the friendly bacteria in your gut!
