EL PASO - One local elementary school is helping students establish good eating habits in the classroom.
Second graders at Bradley Elementary are learning about the essentials through The Fruit and Veggie Fun with Produce program.
Less than a quarter of young children eat the daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables.
School officials say this program is a great way to introduce new foods to the kids.
The program is funded by a portion of The Carol M. White Physical Education for Progress Grant.
