I volunteered this week at the boys’ school for a new program combining nutrition and gym class.Part of it is involving the children in talking about food. First week up was making trail mix, and trying new flavors/textures outside of just eating candy/chocolate. I was impressed by the number of kindergartners I helped with that chose to try all the items offered.
A medley of Crispix cereal and granola.
Pumpkin seeds, semi-sweet chocolate chips, golden raisins, and unsweetened coconut.
It was an easy trail mix, and very tasty to enjoy. The children loved it, and I noticed that the few that hadn’t wanted to try new items, most came up at the end and asked if they could have some after all. That made me very happy to see so many adventurous eaters.
