DALLAS -- The day after a huge road win against the Eagles, the Cowboys rookies went back to school to help teach kids healthy eating habits.

Yeah, the Cowboys Rookie Club partnered with UnitedHealthcare for the event, bringing the newest players to wear the star out to Mi Esceulita Preschool on Monday. There the players read a book about healthy foods with the kids, broke open a piñata filled with healthy snacks, and even rolled up their sleeves and did a little coloring!

"I don't think a lot of kids get to experience stuff like this, so it's definitely fun," said rookie wide receiver Lucky Whitehead. "To see their reactions and give back is always fun, and I definitely enjoyed myself!"

Yeah, just goes to show there's more than one way to give back to the community than winning on Sunday.
