K to A: School Nutrition Mentoring Project of the Northern Healthy Communities Partnership
Nutrition in Schools and Daycares
For the third year in a row, nutrition workers from across northern Saskatchewan came together to learn new recipes, work on menu planning, discuss how to support each other, and learn about sources of added sugar in regular diets. 14 participants came from three schools and seven daycares.
Participants discussed program ideas with others who do the same kind of work as them, i.e., how to get kids to try new recipes, how to reduce sugar in baking, and how to adjust recipes to accommodate allergies.
Participants collectively offered healthy breakfast, snack and lunch ideas during a facilitated menu planning activity.
Participants helped prepare healthy snacks and meals that everyone enjoyed.
