Stephanie Sattazahn, an elementary teacher from Pennsylvania, got creative this month with this dairy snack idea. She told her students that their adopted calf, Bella, had given them each a delicious string cheese snack and made some simple connections to nutrition and health. To add a fun winter/holiday twist to this clever idea, try decorating your cheese sticks to look like a snowman (see below)!
“During snack time, my students were excited to get a snack from Bella. Nothing fancy, just passed out the string cheese and asked why Bella would be giving us string cheese. We then talked about the importance of having three dairy products a day and listed different dairy products we could eat.”
