Apples For The Students

Turns out students were listening during health class: In Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, a group of 4th- and 5th-graders refused to sell candy bars and potato chips as part of a fundraising drive for a trip to Washington, D.C. The students argued that selling the junk food went against the healthy-eating lessons they'd learned that year. For a little while, it looked like the trip would have to be cancelled, but donations from supporters—including $16,000 from diet guru Dr. Atkins' widow, Veronica—rolled in to finance the excursion. The candy-free students are enjoying their D.C. visit this week.
