Nutrition Make n Take

Thank you to all the educators who came out to join us for the Nutrition Make and Take yesterday! Megan Bellinger, public health dietitian, and her student, Ferran, inspired us with the information they provided on gardening with children and promoting vegetables and fruits in child care settings. We were also spoiled by Megan with a fruit tasting to start off our day. Megan shared with us a variety of unique fruits, including dragonfruit, nectarines, and Asian pears.

After learning some new tips and tricks to bring back to the program, the educators were given some time to create a variety of resources! We had fun making puzzles, matching games, and lacing activities. See below for a sneak peek of what we got up to yesterday.

Also, a big thank you to Deb at CTC for assisting with the die presses and the laminating. We appreciate all the help and resources that CTC has to offer to our community!

The feedback that we received from this session was very positive and one educator wrote, “Awesome presenters. Lots of knowledge/engaging/inspiring. Great time of year to offer this. Loved having time to make resources. Thank you!”  We are thrilled that this style of session was such a hit and we look forward to offering another make-and-take session in the fall!
