SnoRidge Healthy Kids Nutrition Camp
I think it's safe to assume that as parents, you are all making efforts to help your children develop healthy eating habits. However, sometimes you might get tired of nagging and just let some food choices slide, I get it.
My goal for hosting this camp is to teach your kids some foundational principles for eating so they can feel good and have stable energy.
Since you're going to be trusting me with your kids, I want to assure you that I am well-qualified. I received both my BS in Nutrition and Exercise Science and MS in Nutrition from Bastyr University. I've been practicing as a Certified Nutritionist in Issaquah at Cascade Integrative Medicine for the last 2 years.
I have extensive experience working with kids both in the nannying setting as well as teaching Baha'i children's classes for many years.
From an early age I was a lover of food, sometimes sneaking fresh fruits and veggies into my bed in the middle of the night for a snack. Being a believer in the important role of nature and movement in obtaining nourishment, I want to share my holistic view with your children of how food, movement, and nature are all intertwined.
I moved to the Snoqualmie Ridge neighborhood in January 2016 and am excited to become involved with the community here.
Both days will be from 10 am to 3 pm. I will be offering a camp for two separate age groups, ages 4-9 and 10-14. The topics of conversation may vary slightly based on the age group. During longer education periods, there will be a mix of relevant activities added in to maintain engagement.
10-12: Nutrition education
12-12:30: Lunch (Premade: will be naturally gluten-free and dairy-free)
1-3: Cooking skills
10-12: Cooking lunch
12-12:30: Lunch (that we made)
12:30-1: Walk to community garden (Educate on how the fuel we eat affects our bodies)
1-1:30: Learn about plant foods at the community garden
1:30-2: Walk back (Discuss basic meal/snack templates)
2-3: Putting it into practice: making a healthy snack.
Ages 4-9: July 11 + 12th
Ages 10-14: July 18 + 19th
There is a limit of 10 children per group due to space limitations. If the interest is high enough, I will add another week of camp. The camp will be held in my home on the Ridge so more specific details about location will be shared with those who sign up.
Though nutrition is best delivered through food, there are some occasions when Anisa would recommend supplements for patients to help them heal quicker or to support the health of specific body systems. If you are interested in purchasing supplements, you may order through our online dispensary with Fullscript (formerly Healthwave).
