Cove Super Snacks
PEER OUTREACH EVENT
The Cove Super Snacks hosted there second peer outreach event this fall. The club's goal was to promote the eating of fruits and vegetables as a healthy snack. The following is a summary written by club members of their outreach activity:
The Cove 4-H SNACZ club put together a booth at the Cove Fall Bazar. We as a club are trying to promote healthy eating. When the people came to our booth they had a chance to spin the “wheel of food” which had different types of veggies and then try a snack made from the vegetable the wheel landed on. When you tried the different types of snacks you also got the recipe for that snack. We also had a matching game, if they matched a veggie with the right fact they got a 4-H prize. The prizes they could choose from were: mini Frisbees, water bottles, sunglasses, stickers and temporary tattoos.
We found out that a lot of people, kids and adults, liked our booth. The weather that day was cold, but that didn’t stop people from coming. A bunch of people in Union County came and ate our snacks and played games. We hoped they learned some things about healthy snacks.
