‘Kids in the Kitchen’ meets

Feb 05, 2018

Kids in the Kitchen is a new after school 4-H Clover Kid club teaching members to have kitchen sense and safety while they learn about the major food groups and making healthy choices for their growing bodies. This club meets every Thursday after school

Members have explored the tasty fun of the kitchen when making Breakfast Splits, Bagel Pizzas and Whole Grain Cereal Treats with ISU Eat Smart, Spend Smart healthy recipes. They have learned and practiced correct handwashing and how to measure dry and liquid ingredients. Each week they do some fun exercises together and use the healthy MyPlate to identify food groups.

Washington County Extension and Washington County Hospitals and Clinics are partnering together to bring this club to 32 Stewart Elementary first-to second-grade students. The Kids in the Kitchen curriculum is a product of Iowa 4-H.

The Washington County Extension Office hopes to expand this club in future years, please contact them if interested in sponsoring or volunteering or with any questions about this Healthy Living Club or how to get involved with other youth activities as a member or volunteer.
