Nutrition Classes

IMG_0687[1]

In addition to being a fabulous chocolatier, our owner, Sarahbeth "Yeli" Marshall holds a Masters degree in Nutrition and has worked as a Registered Dietitian for over 14 years. She teaches nutrition classes locally and is also a Child Nutrition Specialist with a great deal of experience in developing healthy menus that kids will actually eat!

Sarahbeth will travel to local schools and private kindergartens in the Dallas/Fort Worth area and provide a 1/2 hour - 1 hour nutrition lesson with an interactive recipe section for the students to become chefs of their own! The lessons are aimed at school age children from K-5 but can be tailored for older students or adults.

Check out some of the fun lesson plans and recipes your students can interact with:

  • Food as Fuel - Students learn what we need to make our bodies GO! The interactive recipe includes building cars out of healthy snacks.
  • It's a Dairy Good Day - Students will be introduced to essential nutrients in dairy products and why those nutrients are important for growing bodies. The recipe building includes making your own yogurt parfaits!
  • Alien Food - What's that strange fuzzy, green fruit? Students will interact with a variety fruits, vegetables and snacks that may seem foreign to them but are too delicious to pass up! A tasting panel is set up for students to try a variety of new foods!

These lessons are just the tip of the iceberg! Let's get together and see what kinds of fun we can stir up at your school!
