UMCP Dietetic Internship participates in a Maryland-based SNAP-Ed program, and utilizes "Read for Health" curriculum with food prep at Baltimore City's Baybrook Middle School at an After School Program for elementary and middle school students sponsored by Child First Authority.
But once we started with out food prep - we were so focused and excited. We wanted to try everything we made. Our younger children pulled grapes and cut up bananas, while our older children cut avocado, mango, and pineapple into smaller pieces. Our leader then added pomegranate seeds to the bowl and it was time to eat. Our fruit salad included pomegranate seeds, banana, red grapes, mango, pineapple and avocado. We all tried at least a little bit of everything and several of us really liked the new fruits with others being neutral. If you get a chance -- listen to the YouTube version of this great book, so you too can learn all about eating new fruits. Eating new foods can be fun!
