This summer the GBFB Nutrition Team put on four Nutrition Fairs for children at Kids Cafe program sites in Dorchester, Brockton and Fall River. As a result, hundreds of children have taken part in health education activities and learned to be more responsible in their everyday food decisions. Activities included cooking demonstrations that taught the kids how to make healthy snacks, a hydration station, where kids made their own fruit infused water, and MyPlate – YourPlate, which taught the children how to assemble a balanced meal. Additional stations taught exercise activities and educated on the amount of sugar and salt in various snacks and beverages. These nutrition fairs represent GBFB’s commitment to nutrition and efforts to advance healthy initiatives. See the kids in action. Click here to view our gallery.
