Perkins County Extension played host to nearly 70 area 6th grade students from Perkins and Chase counties at the Stumpf International Wheat Center for a day of learning about healthy foods and food choices. This program is a spin off of the highly successful grant funded 4-H Food Smart Families program that was held last year in Culbertson, NE.
This program is designed to encourage students to make healthy food choices, practice what they learn, play active games, and to prepare and try healthy recipes. Five lessons were taught during the program including: portion sizes and reading labels, quick healthy snacks, easy breakfasts, food safety on the go and energy drinks.
