Fruits and Vegetables

It's rewarding to see behavior change in children at afterschool sites. One girl, whose family originated from Africa has been a wonderful participant in my one afterschool sites. She is always willing to try new things and, is always expressing to myself and her peers many new things her family likes to try with fruits and vegetables. The first time she was in group, the children helped me prepare Apple Wraps from the Cooking Matters recipes. They all really enjoyed the recipe. She came back to me the following week and said "My family has been doing that recipe for breakfast for the past week, we all really love that recipe at home now, thanks Miss Whitney". I just always love to hear things like that from my children that I work with, this is exactly why I do what I do everyday!
