Had a great time with 1st, 2nd and 3rd graders on Monday! The lesson was fun and they seemed to really enjoy it. They loved peeling, chopping, preparing and tasting the food. As a new addition to the curriculum, I will be giving them “homework” every week. I sent them home with a fun assignment to create their favorite plate of food using the MyPlate standards. I also asked them to try to help prepare it at home. Hopefully it will help parents see what we are doing and get involved.
It’s kind of a relief to get back in front of the kids. I learned a lot last year and I’m putting some new things into the program as a result. It’s going to be a great Fall program. And I look forward to starting my new “Eating Real” program on Thursday!!
