Troutman Elementary School’s cafeteria was filled with excitement as students saw the messages written on their bananas during school breakfast.

According to Cafeteria Manager Sherri Saunders, “Their little faces lit up. Going through the breakfast serving line students asked their friends, "What does yours say?" or "What did you get?" The breakfast monitors said the kids were eating the bananas as well.”

Messages written on the bananas included:
► You are awesome!
► Be the reason someone smiles,
► You Rock, and
► You are a super star!

The gesture is part of an effort to make a difference every day in a child’s life.
