The New Castle County government sponsored Farmers Markets this summer where I, as a University of Delaware Cooperative Extension nutrition assistant, demonstrated healthy recipes with fresh local ingredients. Geethi John and I worked as a team to prepare and pass out samples of delicious summer salads. We had a great experience promoting health and nutrition to our local community.
In the fall, I was a part of the University of Delaware Cooperative Extension’s Food Smart Families 4-H program as a nutrition trainer. Our job was to go out to schools and after school programs with different health lessons and recipes for elementary school aged children. I’ve always loved working with kids so I was thrilled to bring nutrition lessons into classrooms.
