This is the third year in a row we return to Barron Park School for Snack Attack! The program is sponsored by the PTA auction & Fund a Need.
We teach the entire school of 400 students in 4 half day sessions.
Depending on the ages, we alternated between 4 different snacks. Each student got a chance to make 3 snacks of their own at hands on stations manned by myself and school volunteers. We made:
Almond Date Hemp Blueberry Bars (we had nut free options too).
Asian Lettuce Cups (complete with a cooking lesson on chopping and sauteing.
Everyone has fun at Snack Attack! and most every student not only tries the snacks – THEY LIKE THEM and make them at home!
“I have greatly enjoyed your “productions” with the kids. (Thank you, PTA for your sponsorship!) They really do get excited about it & it does have an impact! Thank you for adding to my own repertoire of healthy eating. My daughter now cooks “Cool Cuisine” at my house!”
