Popcorn is in the Grain Food Group

Kids NutritionOne of the many things we learned (or rather taught)  today at the Office on Youth Summer Fun program is that popcorn is in the grain food group.  Up until I started looking for fun nutrition activities I never would have guessed.  With funding from the Quaker Oats Go Humans grant, CKWL has been able to provide more nutritious food for our young friends this summer.  Besides providing it, we wanted to teach them as well.  The kids colored in their own food pyramids (courtesy of mypyramid. gov/kids), tested their food group knowledge (including the enlightenment about popcorn), and evaluated their previous day’s eating habits while making goals for tomorrow.  Not a bad day with our favorite young friends!
