Papaya Salad

I found fresh papaya for this week’s snack at the local supermarket. A real find! The children scooped the papaya seeds off, peeled and chopped the fruit, spread shredded coconut, and squeezed a few lime juice drops into it—a super simple, super easy snack to make. The children had never tasted papaya before, so they learned who grows papaya, its nutritional properties, and where papaya comes from originally. The children learned about Mesoamerican cultures and how, throughout time, papayas migrated to other parts of the world.
