This month's newsletter from Iowa State University Extension includes an article on ways to include children in food preparation at home. Recipe of the month is Crunchy Apple Roll-ups that would be a good snack project for cooking with children.
W.O.W. also includes food poisoning myth busters, and information on physical activity breaks for adults. Getting up from the desk or couch and moving for 5 to 10 minutes every hour or two can have real benefits for blood glucose and cholesterol levels. This fitness, nutrition and safety newsletter is available as a pdf download, via Twitter or sent directly to your email. Find all these options at ISU Extension.
