Five of eight total participants from the Carbon County Counseling Center graduated from the Cent$ible Nutrition Program. Participants were from Saratoga and Rawlins. They really enjoyed the hands-on cooking. The three that didn't yet graduate have signed up to take the series again soon! The staff has invited Fio back to do more classes, they absolutely loved having Cent$ible Nutrition in their program. During this series, they met on Mondays and went through nine classes.
What the participants had to say...
- "I didn't know how much sugar was getting in my drinks. I was surprised to know there are about 12 teaspoons of sugar in sodas. I was drinking 4 cans of soda everyday. After doing the 'Think what you Drink' activity, I made a commitment to only drink on can of soda a day."
- "I was not familiar with MyPlate before attending the Cent$ible Nutrition Classes. Now I plan my meals using MyPlate, so I make sure I'm eating healthy foods."
- "I'm planning my menus every week and eating healthier meals since I took the CNP classes."
Cent$ible Nutrition Visits the Boys & Girls Club
Fio taught a "Think your Drink" lesson to 4th graders at the Boys & Girls Club in Rawlins. They also prepared the Waldrof Salad for snack; the staff was amazed that you could mix fruits and vegetables together in a healthy, yummy salad.
At first, the kids were a little reluctant to try the celery in the salad, but after a little persuasion they tried it, they loved it and they wanted more! Fio has been invited to do another lesson with the 5th graders.
On January 10th, classes were started with the Special Education for Life Skills Program in Rawlins. They will meet a total of 15 times and so far LOVE the cooking classes and their favorite recipe is the homemade granola.
Teaching to the little guys
Fio taught a fruit lesson to 88 youngsters at Headstart in Rawlins, they got to sample fresh apples and grapes in class. Most of the kids didn't know that raisins are a fruit. Fio also visited Wee Folks in Hanna, where she taught a hand-washing lesson to 23 children. She will be back to Wee Folks for another fun activity in April!
