Food and Nutrition students cook with Bugbee children

The children in the School Age Program at the Bugbee Children’s Center had a busy week during their February break from school. We packed in art projects, skating and laser tag at Interskate 88, fun activities at the AJ Read Science Discovery Center, swimming at Chase Pool and a movie with popcorn and hot chocolate.

The highlight of the week was the time spent with SUNY Oneonta’s Food and Nutrition Association in the Human Ecology building. The kids were given the awesome hands-on opportunity to make smoothies, hummus, cauliflower crust pizza and cookies. They learned about ingredients, recipes, nutrition, and trying new foods outside of their comfort zone. The SUNY students did a fantastic job of engaging all of the children through their organization, thoughtful menu choices, and kid-friendly tasks.  The children were also given recipes to share with their families. Thank you, students, for sharing your love of cooking with our kids!

Bugbee Children’s Center is the SUNY child care facility that serves children from 8 weeks to 5th grade. Please call us if you have any questions.  x2484
