Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV - KTWT-TV) Idaho Elementary schools can have more access to fruits and vegetables. How you might ask?

By applying to implement the U.S Department of Agriculture's Fresh Fruit and Vegetable program.

The objective is for students to eat more fresh fruits and veggies, expand the variety of these foods and offer healthier choices.

The FFVP schools are required to provide these snacks throughout the day besides being an elementary school, those who qualify must operate the national school lunch program.

Plus have more than 50 percent of students eligible for free and reduced meals. Applications are due by April 26th.
