Shanna Putnam Dibble, Elementary Learner Advocate in the Decorah Community School District shared what the children at West Side Child Development Center in Decorah did last monthwith the NE Iowa F2ECE program.
“In October the five early childhood classes did taste tests with broccoli. We tried it raw, broccoli with veggie dip, and enjoyed Mac and Trees (broccoli with cheesy noodles).
“The children did broccoli prints and learned all about the vegetable group.”
“One of their activities during the month was a My Plate food sort.”
Thanks to all the teachers and paraprofessionals working at West Side for connecting children to where their food comes from.
