In the kitchen, they learned about healthy eating, sampled a variety of vegetables, herbs, and spices, and prepared healthy snacks using produce from the market and garden. Their favorite was popcorn, and our favorite was hearing them ask for more vegetables to eat with their cucumber yogurt dip.
They also used that knowledge to create their own recipes with Creative Action’s staff, and here are some of the poems that they wrote about their creations:

A smoothie is pink
A smoothie needs time
A smoothie needs a banana
A smoothie is freedom
A smoothie needs a blender
A smoothie needs a human or dog
A smoothie needs a straw
A smoothie needs the end.
By Pia, Ellie K, Nola, and Aurora
Fruity Paradise is a healthy snack
Fruity Paradise is yummy for your tummy
Juicy sweet, and a tasty treat that is good to eat.
Add an herb, basil or mint they are true to their scent
It is appetizing for you to eat at this show that is really neat
By Rocket, Sebastian, Linus, and Devon
It is smooth and salty.
Its bumpy but not that hard.
The soup is soldier soup.
The soup is yummy.
