Aliy went to the Two Rivers K - 8 School to help celebrate Nation School Lunch Week. Many students in the Two Rivers area eat both breakfast and lunch at the school. Actually, public schools across the United Staes feed over 31 million students every day. The kids gets food choices and sometimes they ask for a little advice on their choices.
Aliy and Allen are very motivated to maintain healthy lifestyles - which includes eating nutritionally balanced meals and remaining physically active. So, Aliy went to school to talk a little about her favorite snacks and what it takes to stay strong while mushing for 9 to 11 days.
The kid audience was very fun and interactive. Many of them see Aliy and Allen at Pleasant Valley Store during the Valley Funale picnic and Sled Dog Races and well as around town. But, it is always fun to visit with neighbors and just simply say "Hi!" Aliy decided that since this was a special audience she would share a story that she doesn't often talk about: arm wrestling. The kids thought that was the best story that they had ever heard.
"What do I have to eat to become THAT strong?!?!"
