June 5th at 11:30 am – For Week 1 of Wacky Wednesday’s, we will go over hand-washing and the beginning of food safety and the MyPlate.

  • Handwashing- We will review proper hand-washing. Although it sounds simple, kids usually love it because we’ll bring our glow light and show them “germs” on their hands.
  • Food Safety- We will introduce food safety by talking about what should be the 1st step in preparing food: Cleaning/preparing your area.
  • Myplate- Introduce the 5 food groups (We’ll go into detail about the food groups later on in the weeks to follow).
  • We will finish up with our snack

June 12th at 11:30 am – Week 2: Breakfast Is For Everybody

We will review the importance of breakfast, why our body’s need it and the benefits and consequences of skipping breakfast. We will also talk about what could be alternative meals for breakfast.
