Inspired by Emily Sutterfield's story, *Lily and the Apple Seed,* helps elementary school educators encourage healthy eating and active living. Lily settles in every day after school to watch her "favorite pal" Huck and to eat all the salty and sweet Snackum's products he sells on TV. Lily's Grandma Francis grows her own food. When Lily is sent to Grandma's for the summer, she learns to love fruits, vegetables, cheeses, and meats. Back home, Lily must make a decision--will she continue to make healthy choices as exemplified by Grandma or will she return to Huck's tempting treats? Designed for grades kindergarten through 5th, the play addresses Nutrition and Personal Health and Safety standards on the Health and Wellness strand of the Arkansas K-8 PE and Health Curriculum Frameworks.
Wildwood Park for the Arts will tour the play to elementary schools in February and March of 2011.
