UNMC nursing students visited the kindergarten and 1st grade classes today to educate them on hand washing and healthy eating. They discussed how, when, and why students are to wash their hands. They completed teaching on healthy foods and why students need to choose fruits, veggies, and lean meats. They discussed limiting sweets and fried foods. Students went through a “buffet” line and picked various food pictures and then the choices were discussed and how to make better food choices. At the end of their presentation students were given grapes and apple slices to snack on.
