LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Celebrity chef Giada De Laurentiis teamed up with a local elementary school Friday afternoon for "Snacks in the Garden."

De Laurentiis went to Jan Jones Blackhurst Elementary School for a "Green Our Planet" event where the school houses one of the most extensive school garden programs in the county.

Friday's event stressed the importance of fresh produce and a well-balanced diet to students.

"We teach them everything, from the soil up to the finished product that's growing in the garden. So, we teach them every step of the way," said Green Our Planet Chef Program Manager Lisa Cheplak.
