Tasty Kids Nutrition Club – December Update

Yep, I’m a little behind on the updates!  In December, this delightful group of kiddos celebrated the holiday season with a lot of excitement!

On the first week, the kids made healthy red and green foods to focus on the holiday colors.  We used a fun spiralizer to create zucchini noodles, or ZOODLES, and tossed them with fresh basil, tomatoes, mozzarella cheese, and Italian dressing for our own version of Caprese Salads.  The zoodles were a huge hit!

During the second club meeting, we continued with the Red and Green theme…. Red and green bell peppers rolled into herb cream cheese pinwheels were super tasty!  Watermelon, green grapes, cucumbers, and fresh mint salad topped off the afternoon.  I’m always thrilled when a child declares, “wow, this is yummy!” about a food they’d never encountered or tasted before!

For our final meeting of 2016, the kids created gifts for their parents.  We made a Spicy Hot Cocoa Mix, which helped them practice their measuring skills!
