Adamston Elementary Teams Up with WVU Extension Services for Nutrition Program

IMG_4395

Adamston Elementary School has teamed up with WVU Extension services and their Youth Health Educator for Harrison County, Brandi Adkins, to teach their students the importance of nutrition and germs. The program is meant to educate children in the early stages of life about the importance of healthy habits and developing those habits into a lifestyle.

Before the end of the 2018-2019 school year all grade levels will complete the WVU extension program.  Adkins pays a visit to each classroom numerous times throughout the year. During her time in the classroom Adkins engages the children with props and visual displays. During her lesson on Tuesday, March 26, she spoke with the class about balanced food groups, and what type of foods go into each of those groups. Initially, she reviewed each food group before asking the students what types of foods might fit into each group. Adkins also brought various examples of foods that’ll fit into each group to help students visualize what fits into each group.

Adkins also brought students a snack that consisted of a food from each one of the groups, but before snack time came a lesson on germs. Students learned about the importance of washing your hands before eating and after various activities to help prevent the spread of additional germs and illness. After a quick germ lesson, students washed their hands and had the opportunity to enjoy their well-balanced snack.

Students at Adamston Elementary have loved having the program at their school, according to Kindergarten teacher Stephanie Scott. “My students love Brandi, and they look forward to the days she comes to our classroom. All of the children have been very involved in each of the lessons”, said Scott.

 The WVU Extension Family Nutrition Program is funded through the Snap-Ed. More information on the Family Nutrition Program can be found at https://extension.wvu.edu/food-health/nutrition/fnp
