National Nutrition Month Exeter Public Library 2pm group! 3/24/2010

I had so much fun reading to the last group at the Exeter Public Library!  March is National Nutrition Month and as a member of the New Hampshire Dietetics Association I was able to read to three different groups in Exeter.  I read a book called The Vegetables We Eat and we talked about the different colors of vegetables and what vegetables they like to eat!  After we read together we colored a worksheet of different veggies!  I also had a hand out for the family to bring home with healthy snacks that are kid friendly!  We had a great time.

National Nutrition Month Exeter Public Library 10am group 3/24/2010

I was at the Exeter Public Library at 10am reading to some of the cutest kids in Exeter!  For story time I read The Vegetables We Eat!  It was interresting to see when I asked the kids what their favorite vegetable was I heard little voices scream with excitement!  Carrots!  Broccoli! Celery! Green Beans! Strawberries!  Kids 5 and under are still learning the difference between fruits and vegetables, names of fruits and vegetables, and colors at this age.  It was a great opportunity to make a difference in the kids lives by talking about different fruits and vegetables, how they grow, what kind of vegetable they are, and their color!  After we read the book everyone knew that eggplants were purple!  Mission accomplished they learned something!  After we read together we colored a worksheet full of veggies.
