The Shining Mountain Health and Wellness Program paid a visit to the Southern Ute Indian Montessori Academy on Wednesday, March 9, where they demonstrated how much sugar is actually consumed in common household drinks. Academy students took turns measuring the amount of sugar contained in soda, Gatorade, and juice, often with surprising results. The students then prepared a meal of healthy snacks that consisted of peanut butter, nuts, and fruit.
