FoodPrints Anywhere, while Families are Home
During this time school is closed, we are staying connected to our families through FoodPrints Anywhere – regular posts that extend FoodPrints learning at home with fun, health-promoting learning activities that use minimal materials and screen time, with a theme of “use what you have.” In April, we focused on Earth Month; in May, we our focus is Plant Science. Our accompanying recipe guides help families to cook delicious meals out of simple pantry ingredients, fruits and vegetables on-hand, and produce from the farmers market.
Give our activities a try:
- Salad Dressing Challenge – a way to use ingredients you have at home while learning about the ratios, ingredients, measurements, and techniques to create your own tasty, nutritious salad dressing
- Delicious dinner bowls that use grains, beans, and vegetables you have on hand
- Scrumptious soup bowls with a mix of colors, flavors, and textures in a flavorful soup
- Create planters and grow your own seeds
- Make a Mancala game – a fun way for kids and adults to use math and strategy skills
Beyond the digital world, FoodPrints Educators are partnering with FRESHFARM’s Pop Up Food Hub Team to distribute bags of fresh produce at Kimball Elementary School, a FoodPrints partner school and emergency meal distribution site. Included in the bags of produce are FoodPrints recipes and learning activities.
