  A 4 week series of nutrition classes were held at the Bridgehampton School for K, 2nd & 3rd grade students as part of a National Nutrition Month celebration. Students learned about different Go-Slow & Whoa Foods and the month culminated with a K-5th School Health Fair. Our ESNY nutritionist set up an interactive, educational table with healthy snacks and fruits & vegetables.
Students from each grade where divided into three groups. One group got to test their knowledge with the healthy snacks prize wheel, the second group was at the table assembling healthy snacks within MyPlate, the third group played MyPlate beach ball food group game and exercised as they got their turn. “It was great to see how the children were identifying the different food groups and how they suggested different ways of adding fruits and vegetables in their meals and snacks.” (3rd grade teacher).
Healthy recipes and 10 tips handouts and food tasting were also a fun way to reinforce learning to make good food choices.
