Hula Hoopin' Fun for Father's Day
"A Celebration of Families" is a National Event, this was the first time it was held in Wyoming. Almost all agencies involved were non-profit agencies who work with the same clientele as the Cent$ible Nutrition Program. CNP had a booth at the event and featured how to make your own trail mix, where participants could sample trail mix variations and pick up program information. CNP had hula hoops and jump ropes available and the kids loved them!
Participants had a great time! To see more pictures of the event, visit Casper Housing Authority's Facebook Page.

CNP educators, Michelle Hans (center) and Krista Brown (right), along with many volunteers, prepared over 200 quarts of Master Mix for the Food for Thought Project. Each kit sent home with families contained a plump bag of Master Mix, approx.... one quart along with a pamphlet of recipes and Cent$ible Nutrition Program information.
Master Mix is a flour based baking mix, that is the foundation for many nutritious recipes from Impossible Taco Pie to delicious brownies. Karla Case, CNP Educator in Natrona, hopes that families will learn that it is not difficult to prepare nutritious, cost-effective meals from scratch. Included with the mix kits is our program information if parents want to learn more about CNP and take a class, that is also a bonus!
