EatWell Exchange went to Sunrise Middle to provide nutrition education and healthy snacks. Children were taught about portion sizes, choosing healthier vending machine choices, body image and the importance of having a healthy diet. They played games to help show fluid intake and the best options for them to drink.
We prepared snacks with them. The first was a trail mix they built on their own and we also had them make a healthy smoothie they can have as a snack when they get home from school. As the parents came to pick them up we shared the recipe with them so they can give it a try.
