Kids' Classes Focus on Healthy Eating, Alternative Choices

Sep. 3, 2019

COSHOCTON - Collette Burdette encouraged children of Chestnut Crossing to at least try a bite of the Sunshine Roll-Ups she made for a youth food and nutrition class. 

Just about every kid did with several eating a second and third. Burdette substituted yogurt for mayonnaise in the dish and, while some of the youth said they didn't like yogurt after it was revealed, they also admitted they wouldn't have known if not told.

This was Burdette's first outing as the new SNAP-Ed Program Assistant for the Ohio State University Extension Office of Coshocton County. Burdette will be doing more than 40 such programs focusing on different foods and nutrition lessons throughout the summer with weekly stops at Chestnut Crossing, The Meadows and food programs at Himebaugh Park and Burt Park in West Lafayette.
