The Healthy Idea
How we'll spend the $1,000 grant:
We will meet twice a week for a total of 24 lunch hours. We will gather and prepare some healthy and tasty snacks.Four different grade 6 class bubbles will be able to participate 6 times each. This will respect the sante publique guidelines.The cooking classes will be aimed at teaching the children simple recipes that they can later prepare at home on their own. The goal is to encourage healthy eating habits and offer a healthy alternative to simply putting a hand into the “snack food cupboard”. Space is limited to Grade Six students as they often find themselves at home alone after school.Students will bring their recipes home with them in order to be able to reproduce the lesson for their families. Being in a classroom bubble and the restraints of covid in a school can make it very stressful for students. Also, they will not be able to participate in any fieldtrips this year. Cooking is an activity where they can interact with each other in a relaxed environment.
