This past week, UC CalFresh provided Hanford Parks & Recreation Summer Camp, Jr. Rec's with nutrition education. They had the opportunity to learn about different vegetables that are grown in Mexico. They learned the importance of consuming fruits and vegetables which provides them with nutrients to help their bodies grow, stay healthy, and give them energy to think, learn, and play. Several of the teen leaders volunteered to chop zucchinis, onion, bell peppers, summer squash, and garlic to create a Black Bean and Veggie Tostada. They learned how to safely handle knives when cooking and the importance of keeping the knife tip down while keeping fingers away from the area being cut. The young leaders enjoyed making the tostadas. They are always excited and ready for our nutrition education lessons!
