Getting Healthy at Camp KO!

 

There was no time for campfires, lake swim tests and "Kumbaya" at Camp KO this summer.  Instead, this energetic group of ambitious children were focused on healthy minds and healthy bodies.  My small contribution to this unique West Hartford, CT camp offering was a healthy eating cooking demonstration.  The rest of the week, these campers played tennis, basketball, learned about writing and publishing books, creative arts and science.  

I happened to be there on National Vanilla Milkshake Day so it seemed most appropriate to open my demo with vanilla and honey greek yogurt malted milkshakes and a toast to healthy eating and "super foods"!  I demonstrated 3 recipes highlighting the healthy ingredient alternatives and the "superfoods".  We also competed a "superfoods" worksheet to help kids identify and understand all of the healthy options that can be available to them throughout the day.  

The segment ended with some questions and answers and I was thoroughly impressed by the engagement and sophistication of this youngsters when it came to food. A special thanks to health conscious parents and the Food Network for helping to make my job at Camp KO easy!
