I’d like to thank the wonderful parent volunteers that put on a fantastic “Food and Fun with Nurture” event at Community School Middle school last week: KB Bigelow, Katrina Harmon, Lauri Bunting, Alison Ruggeri, and Andrea Cookston. These gals put together an amazing spread of food that the kids really enjoyed tasting.
Lauri provided a Super Smoothie Template that allowed the students to modify amounts of key ingredients and be creative.
Here is how the template worked:
Bananas (perfect ripeness is yellow with brown spots)
Fresh coconut water
Fresh young Thai coconuts
Organic ginger root
Organic Hemp Seeds
Coconut Flakes (or use meat from fresh coconuts)
Students also got to experiment in making juices. The kids chose what to put into the juices, with ingredients including apples, pears, kale, Swiss chard, beets, ginger, and carrots. Here are some additional pictures of the smiling faces! Thank you to all who participated in this delicious and adventurous Food and Fun!
