CES students learn about healthy foods

Campbellsville Elementary School Wings Express students recently learned about healthy foods.

 

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 played a game with students to see whether they know which foods are good for them, and which ones we should only eat sometimes.

 

She gave a student pictures of two foods and then asked the group which food they believe is healthier.

 

After playing the game, students made a healthy trail mix to take home.

 

At Wings Express, 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.

 

There are no Wings Express activities on Wednesdays.

 

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.
