Childhood Nutrition Day Celebrated at Sandy Hill Elementary School

 

28 OCTOBER 2019

Childhood Nutrition Day Celebrated at Sandy Hill Elementary School

 

Sandy Hill Elementary School students used their senses to explore healthy foods on Childhood Nutrition Day on October 16 in an educational taste session coordinated by Dorchester Career and Technology Center teacher Charlene Zinnel and her Culinary Arts students.

Students from kindergarten to 5th grade visited three taste sessions to sample different foods. One station offered different varieties of apple, with the students voting on their favorite. Another station had students touch fruits with different textures – mango, kiwi, and avocado – and then taste them. At the final station, students smelled and then tasted samples representing sweet (grapes), salty (pumpkin seeds), bitter (cocoa powder), sour (lemons), and spice (radishes).

Childhood Nutrition Day was a collaborative effort of the DCTC Culinary Program, Leslie Bishop and volunteers from Mid-Shore Meals till Monday, Nate Bratko of the University of Maryland Extension Program, The Judy Center’s Coordinator Chareka Harris, and Sandy Hill Elementary School. It was launched by the American Culinary Foundation in 1995 to spread awareness of good nutrition and obesity issues.
