This morning Kaitlin and I spent time at a summer literacy program for kids, run by Extension Service. It was the last day of the 6 week program, but the children still seemed to be having fun. Throughout the course of this program, kids have 20 minutes of one on one reading time each day. So this morning I read with 4 different children. Literacy might not be the first thing in your mind when you think of children’s nutrition, but I would argue that working in community nutrition requires a comprehensive approach to education and people. By caring about more in their lives than simply educating them about healthy foods, I demonstrate that I care about them as whole people.
We spent this afternoon in the office, doing computer work and planning.
Our lesson plans have been developed, our materials have been gathered, and our food shopping list is made- we are ready to start 4-H Day Camp next week!
