The first graders at Stewart Elementary are into week four of the Pick a Better Snack program delivered by Washington County Extension/4-H. Tuesday, February 13 they enjoyed spinach salad and learning how those dark colored fruits and vegetables pack a powerful punch of nutrients. Each week students assist handing out the snack practicing safe food handling. Jace Kinzenbaw, son of Jamie and Jermey Kinzenbaw, handed out spinach to his classmates in Mrs. Rhiannon Long’s first grade classroom. Students also worked together to sort foods into the correct food groups on the Healthy MyPlate.

Kids in the Kitchen is a new after school 4-H Clover Kid club teaching members to have kitchen sense and safety while they learn about the major food groups and making healthy choices for their growing bodies. This club meets every Thursday after school

Members have explored the tasty fun of the kitchen when making Breakfast Splits, Bagel Pizzas and Whole Grain Cereal Treats with ISU Eat Smart, Spend Smart healthy recipes. They have learned and practiced correct handwashing and how to measure dry and liquid ingredients. Each week they do some fun exercises together and use the healthy MyPlate to identify food groups.

Washington County Extension and Washington County Hospitals and Clinics are partnering together to bring this club to 32 Stewart Elementary 1st-2nd grade students. The Kids in the Kitchen curriculum is a product of Iowa 4-H.

The Washington County Extension Office hopes to expand this club in future years, please contact them if interested in sponsoring or volunteering or with any questions about this Healthy Living Club or how to get involved with other youth activities as a member or volunteer.
