Fun with Food 

Description:  Instead of eating to get full, we will discover why choosing certain foods over others helps our bodies grow & develop. Reviewing the 5 food groups and tasting foods from each will exposure our palates to new experiences and exciting adventures as we learn what makes a healthy snack, how to prepare healthy foods & snacks, and how to make good food choices. We will work with kitchen tools both familiar and new ones but always focus of Safety First!! As we learn about Blessing others and the importance of sharing, we will prepare treats for our community.
