Kids in the Kitchen Club Mixes, Measures and Moves

            Kids in the Kitchen is a new after school 4-H Clover Kid club teaching members to have kitchen sense and safety while they learn about the major food groups and making healthy choices for their growing bodies.

            Members started the club November 6 learning about safe food preparation with proper handwashing and food washing.  They exercised together and made Magical Fruit Salad from the ISU Eat  Smart, Spend Smart healthy recipes.   They learned and practiced correct handwashing and how to safely cut while reading a recipe.

            Washington County Extension and Kalona Rotary are partnering together to bring this club to 15 Mid Prairie East Elementary 2nd grade students.  The Kids in the Kitchen curriculum is a product of Iowa 4-H.  This afterschool club is being taught by volunteers Jessica Nafziger and Sarah Rodgers.
