Winter POP Club – Week 13
February 2 – Week 13: This week our POP kids will be learning about eating the rainbow. They will receive coulouring worksheets where they will need to figure out what each fruit is and what colour it should be. When they guess the right colour we will teach them the health benefits of eating a fruit of that colour. Afterwards, we will work with them to cut them out and glue them onto rainbows!
2-Bite Club: Frozen Raspberries
Discover the Power of Produce and join the POP Club this Sunday!
Last Sunday, the POP kids worked with our guest Denise to learn about proper knife skills. If you haven’t yet registered, come down to the POP tent this Sunday and join the club! We’ll be doing fun activities for the kids every week 🙂
So, how does the POP Club work?
Well, the POP Club is a farmers market-based kids program. Each week children (ages 5-12 years old) will participate in fun and educational activities that will teach them about fruits and vegetables, local food systems and healthy food preparation. After that, they will be trying the 2-Bite of the week which will be a fruit or vegetable that’s in season and can be found at the market. As they try the 2-Bite we will share with them interesting facts about what they are eating. Once they finish the activity and try the 2-Bite, children receive a $3 market token that can be used towards any fruit or vegetable of their choice. They can either use their token right then or save them for bigger purchases. This teaches kids how to make healthier food choices and how to manage their money.
There is no cost to participate and the program runs every Sunday rain or shine!
Hope to see you this Sunday!
