Participate in this event to teach children about healthy food choices.
We are asking all Californians, and particularly K-12 students, to be a scientist for a day and help UCCE celebrate our centennial year.

Students in South Lake Tahoe and Amador, Calaveras, Tuolumne counties will be learning about healthy beverage choices by utilizing a classroom activity kit that features a lesson on “Rethinking Your Drink”. We want students to see how much sugar is really in sweetened beverages! The kit also includes supplies for an Orange Juice Spritzer – a yummy taste test so students can learn to make their own orange “soda” with no sugar added. Students and teachers will be completing the activity and taste test during the week of May 5-9, 2014.

For more information about the UCCE CalFresh Nutrition Education day of science activities contact Wendy West or 530-621-5533.


The Nutrition, Family, and Consumer Sciences program helps people better manage their family and personal resources. The program provides consumers -- especially the parents of young children -- with information in food and nutrition, food safety, food preservation, and money management. Training and information is also provided to health and education professionals such as nurses, foster care parents, home health aides residential care operators, and teachers.
