Hearing positive feedback from teachers participating in the UC CalFresh nutrition education program makes our day!
" Hi teacher Kristi,
Guess what? Tasting golden raisins and pistachios, had a child who is a very picky eater and mom says it's hard to get her to try new foods. So while tasting pistachios, she liked them so much she told her mom to buy her some.
After class mom come back to ask me what we did that day because the child asked for pistachios. Mom said she has never tried to eat them so she was very surprised. When I informed her that we taste foods through our program with teacher Kristi, this week we had golden raisins and pistachios. We sit at small groups and try them to see who likes them and who doesn't.
Mom had to thank me because she has a hard time trying to get her to taste anything different. She thought this was so great and was going to the store to buy her child pistachios. How awesome was that!
Thanks so much,
Teacher Liz-Heaton Preschool"
WOW! Thanks for sharing teacher Liz!
