Wyoming Kids Go to Hospital after Eating Veggies

LARAMIE, Wyo. (AP) — This isn't going to help kids eat their vegetables.

About a dozen Wyoming preschoolers at Linford Elementary School in Laramie were taken to the hospital Tuesday after eating sample-sized portions of either yucca, the cactus, or yuca, with one c, the root vegetable.

It was part of a push to get students to eat new types of fruits and vegetable.

Superintendent Brian Recht says the district's food supplier couldn't confirm which of the two was served. Both are potentially harmful if not properly prepared.

The Laramie Boomerang (http://bit.ly/11eMKWa ) reported that one preschooler reported nausea, but it's not clear if it was related to the food.

Samples were also served at other schools, but no one reported getting sick.
