    The preschool and PK classes of St. Joseph Catholic School in

    Farmington recently received a Dairy Dollars Grant from St. Louis District

    Dairy Council. Each class received a $25 Wal-Mart

    gift card to be used to purchase dairy products. All of the

    ingredients chosen for their recipes are low-fat, fat-free

    or sugar-free. The purpose of this program is to intro-

    duce children to new and healthy recipes which then

    helps to foster good eating habits.

    which 9 out of 10 students report loving it!
