CES students make trail mix

Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently learned about eating healthy and made their own trail mix.

 

Angie Freeman, expanded foods and nutrition program assistant at Taylor County Extension Office, recently came to Wings Express to read to students and talk to them about eating healthy.

 

Freeman talked to students about foods that are always healthy to eat, and foods that are only good to eat occasionally.

 

She read the book “D.W. The Picky Eater” by Marc Brown, about a young girl who doesn’t want to try new vegetables but later finds out she likes them.

 

Freeman talked to students about being open to try new foods, including fruits and vegetables, and foods that are prepared in different ways.

 

After the lesson, students made trail mix out of Cheerios, Goldfish crackers, raisins, cranberries, sunflower kernels, pretzels and edamame.

 

Wings Express is a program to help students with homework and other activities. Students receive help with reading, math, science, technology, social skills and more. They also participate in activities to learn about nutrition.

 

Wings Express students stay at school from 3 to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays for activities.

 

Students are given a snack and then divided into groups to participate in programs that best fit their needs.

 

About 90 students will participate in the Wings Express program.

 

Amanda Barnett is Wings Express director.

 

For more information about the program, call Barnett at (270) 465-4561 Ext. 31141.
