The Program Advisor made a healthy snack that was distributed to those who wanted it at lunch time. The students and teachers who tried it loved it. I think the students who chose not to try it missed out. A recipe slip was left with the teachers to distribute to the children who wanted to try the snack at home. Oatmeal Squares Snack Mix: 1/4 cup margarine, melted 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 4 cups Quaker Brown Sugar Oatmeal Squares Cereal, 1 cup slivered almonds 1 cup dried cranberries. Melt margarine and add brown sugar and cinnamon. Toss together with cereal. Spread on a baking sheet. Bake in a 300 degree oven for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and stir in almonds. Return to oven. Bake 5-10 more minutes, until lightly browned. cool completely. Add cranberries and toss lightly. Serving size is 1/3 cup. You can leave the almonds out, which we did for about 1 batch, just in case of allergies. Toasting the almonds in the oven separately will also work well, too.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

We asked the students what kind of a snack they might enjoy and to share with their classmates. Because our students were younger, we chose not to involve them in the preparation process. In a different situation, that would be fun.
