Students Learn Healthy Eating by Doing!

Nutritionists from Hy-Vee, our business partner, stopped by to help our Structured Learning students learn about food and nutrition in a tasty way!  We had our first lesson with Hy-Vee dietitian and the students appear to have enjoyed themselves. They made smiley face snacks out of bell peppers, tomatoes, cream cheese, whole wheat crackers and basil.  Most of the ingredients were from our Success Garden!  Students also learned about the 4 main food groups and how to create a balance diet. It was interesting to see how the few who hesitated at 1st to try out the snack finally tried it. Our next class will be on Friday, Sept. 20th @ 1:20-2:00…again the students will be using produce from the garden to make another health snack.
