Make every day a healthy snack day
The Make Every Day Healthy Snack Day initiative is a statewide movement to inspire Californians to make healthier snack choices.
Coraima Linares, Melissa Mabuchi and Vanity Campbell of the UC ANR Staff Assembly Wellness Committee Planning Subcommittee have organized a series of virtual potlucks following the monthly UC ANR town halls.
Focused on healthy snacking habits and nutrition education, this health promotion effort will provide an opportunity for UC ANR employees to share and extend healthy snack ideas with one another through a virtual potluck. The goal of the event is to encourage everyone to Make Every Day Healthy Snack Day while engaging and connecting with colleagues across the state.
Each session will be scheduled for about 15 minutes at the end of UC ANR town hall meetings. Employees are invited to share one of their favorite snacks as a recipe presentation, live demonstration or TikTok video to present during monthly sessions to help all of us discover new ingredients and flavors, enjoy fun recipes, and make easy everyday simple and healthy snacks.
At the January virtual potluck, Marina Aguilera, community education specialist II in UCCE Tulare County, and Eldon Bueno, community education specialist II in UCCE Kings County, presented their snack ideas. Watch their healthy pita snack video: https://youtu.be/tttrE1jubMY.
