Kids in the Kitchen

There’s no such thing as “too early” to learn about nutritious eating. I’m not talking calories and fat, I’m talking healthy choices.

Tonight at the women’s ACC tournament I had the opportunity to pass out brochures encouraging kids to stop by certain stations to learn about healthy habits. Some of those stations included exciting exercise, portion distortion, and rethink your drink.

Before I headed to the tournament I grabbed a few snacks. I can’t talk about food all night and be hungry!

I had a quick tasting plate of Granny Smith apples, sharp cheddar cheese, and Wheat Thins Multigrain crackers.

Not such a great picture, but yay for the ACC tournament!acc

I was pretty disappointed I didn’t get to work with kids at the different stations, but at least I was able to help a little by passing out booklets.

On the way home I stopped at Spring Garden Pizza (the same place Kelly and I went for pizza & beer after our marathon relay) and picked up some pizza. The husband and I split a half carnivore/ half buffalo pizza. We had to talk them into making it half and half…geez! (Wanna guess whose side was whose?!)

Now off for some sleep and work in the am! And hopefully finally catching up on some homework! Gee what an exciting Saturday. I hope yours is looking better than mine!! 🙂

    I’m so glad you had a good volunteering experience! I agree that it’s never too early to start learning about healthy choices. However, I once overheard a mom telling her four-year-old daughter how many calories were in her Dairy Queen blizzard…I do not think that a four-year-old should even know what a calorie is!

    I have a weekend of studying ahead too. Ugh! Good luck 🙂

    What a great experience with the kids. Never to early to be introduced to yummy, but healthy foods!

    what a cool thing to do with the kids! i know it was probably impractical at the tourney but have you ever thought of doing a cooking thing with kids? i’ve read that when kids help cook they make healthier choices
