Understanding the importance of helping children make responsible, healthy food choices from a young age, UAS Physician, Dr. Amna Butt and KG2 Teacher, Tolu Daramola, put into action “Tasty Treats,” an initiative aimed at introducing UAS early childhood students to delicious, healthy snacks. With the invaluable help of Chef Nasser and Hatem in the school cafeteria, snacks were prepared across the academic year and were served to Pre-K to Grade 1 students during their morning breaks. Dr. Butt created a demo video, which was shown to students prior to serving them the treats. Students were introduced to four delicious, freshly prepared snacks, which were free of any additives, processed sugars and saturated fats, with alternative recipes for children with food allergies or special dietary requirements. On the menu were banana and date milkshakes, cucumber and labneh sandwiches on whole wheat bread, mango strawberry smoothies, and on the eve of Ramadan, students will be served Rainbow Fruity Rockets (fruit kebabs). The snacks are simple to prepare, delicious to eat and best of all, healthy. Judging by the children’s response, the treats went down a treat!
