February 2018: Nutrition Classes with Marcy Rebar

Next year the fifth-graders will be off to middle school and greater independence in many ways, including food choices, so we invited dietician Marcy Rebar to share her expertise. The kids learned everything from the benefits of consuming a variety of foods from the various food groups to which foods offer good fat vs. bad fat, from what role vitamins play to how to read and understand labels, and from how food companies target young audiences to the overwhelming use of sugar in many food products. We hope our fifth-graders make wise choices with their growing independence.
