I continued to work on the “Healthy Snacking” lesson that Emily and I will be teaching next week to about twenty 3rd and 4th graders from The Shack. My main focus for the day was creating a handout or pamphlet for the children to take home and share with their parents. The information I included in the handout is the recipes for the salsa and tortilla chips that the kids will be learning how to make during the lesson, healthy vs non-healthy snacking ideas, the benefits of choosing whole grain products, and the acronym for S.N.A.C.K.S.
S.N.A.C.K.S. stands for:
Not in front of the TV
Am I really hungry?
Choose low-fat foods from MyPlate for snacks
Kitchen is a good place to eat
Sit down, slow down, savor, and enjoy!
