The Sivells Elementary FUTP 60 afterschool team prepared an afterschool snack on November 18, 2015. The snack they prepared was Strawberry Yogurt Crunch. The recipe consisted of strawberries, orange juice, whole oats, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, clear honey, and thick plain yogurt. The yogurt is a low-fat source of protein and calcium, while the strawberries and orange juice are rich in vitamin C. The honey adds a natural sweetness. The food services department and parents also got involved helping the students prepare the snack. The children did all the cutting, measuring, cooking, assembling, and, of course, eating! The team was so excited to use the school cafeteria. Every student ate the snack they prepared and most asked for extra. This Play was a definite success. The team plans on working on more healthy snacks that involve dairy.
