Healthy Food Art Lesson at the Eliot school 

I had the pleasure of making these delicious and healthy wicked witches with over 70 1st grade students at my daughter’s school today. Ingredients were avocado, lime, carrots pepper black bean and blue corn chips.  No junk, pure plant based nutrition that they gobbled up. Each child had a chance to help make the guacamole for the witch face, which included squeezing in some lime, sprinkling some sea salt and also mashing it up. They then assembled their festive witches with the remaining ingredients. “Cooking” as simple as this drives up a child’s interest in sampling new foods as this makes them feel more empowered and involved in the process. It is wonderful to see the impact this has on their likelihood to try and ultimately embrace fruits and vegetables.
