I don't have pictures, but I wanted to share a great activity we had last night. I work with the 8-12 year old girls at Church. We meet twice a month for activities that cover a wide range of topics. Last night one of the ladies that help me (right now we have 4) did an awesome activity on healthy snacks. Jenner planned and set up four stations, one with fruit kabobs (the girls cut the fruit), one with pinwheels (tortilla, cream cheese, spinach, ham) and fruit parfaits (vanilla yogurt, kashi cereal, strawberries). The girls rotated through these 3 stations and at the end we watched a demonstration on making hummus. Jenner started by talking to the girls about what they knew about nutrition. She had a great handout she found on Pinterest and on the back she listed ideas for the girls. She suggested they post it somewhere at home where they could see it when they were trying to think of something to eat. She also talked to them about the dangers of dieting and how they should eat for a healthy body. It was great!
