On Friday, Harmony Hills Elementary School fifth-graders talked with the students from Scotland as part of the first International School Meals Day.
The day was meant to allow schools from across the world share healthy eating habits and nutrition education, according to a school system press release.
Damian Grasso, a fifth-grade teacher at the Silver Spring school, said he wanted his students to see that kids worldwide make healthy choices regarding food.
They had a blast, he said.
“It is about global citizenship and being able to relate to people outside of this city we live in,” Grasso said.
Harmony Hills Elementary is a previous recipient of a Silver HealthierUS School Challenge Award, and is leading by example when it comes to promoting nutrition, physical activity, and nutrition education, the press release stated.
