International Lessons

At each weekly session, the children will learn about the healthy eating habits of another country.  For example, during our session called “Calcium Can Be Cool”, the children will learn about the difference between Greek yogurt and American-style yogurt.  Greece is one of the healthiest countries in the world and Greeks typically eat yogurt for breakfast.  Greek yogurt is healthier than American yogurt because it contains fewer carbohydrates and more protein.  It also has a thicker consistency and can be used as a healthy substitute in many food applications, including in frosting used on baked goods, such as cupcakes.  As many of the program’s volunteers are International Baccalaureate or Global Studies students, these lessons allow the volunteers to apply their learning experience beyond the classroom.
