On our first day, my team and I were very anxious of how things were going to turn out. We worked very hard to make this experience a memorable one. We prepared a week in advance for the first day. We had our tasks well planned, and educational material organized so that the children learn something positive every day.
On Monday, we prepared do-it-yourself whole wheat tortillas with nutritious mixed beans and corn, topped with marble cheese and salsa. Most of the children enjoyed their meals and learned about beans as protein and why we need to have balanced meals. After lunch, our team debriefed and discussed what went right and how we can improve. The first day turned out great and we are excited to continue to provide healthy meals as well as nutritional education to the camp children!
