Whether you work with children on an everyday basis or simply lead a few nutrition lessons in your local school each year, this session will give you creative activities to implement! Come prepared to let loose as your inner 7-year old will get to practice some of the games and lessons in our session. From a food group relay race to the "go-slow-whoa" game to building a breakfast book, you’ll learn ways to get a bit silly and connect better with your littlest clients. The hands-on activities discussed will be appropriate for the classroom, after-school programs, and community settings, with many applicable to family counseling sessions as well.
