On Saturday, February 29, 30 Belmont occupational therapy students volunteered their time to help facilitate an interactive food experience for dozens of preschool children. The children and their families are part of a Nashville community group for parents of multiples, and the event was created and hosted by Sprocket Therapy.
Occupational therapist and clinic owner Barb Talbert designed a preschool “cooking school” with the idea of introducing children from a young age to various nutritious foods through play-based food-prep experiences.
The children engaged in various food stations to create edible, preschool-sized snacks and drinks. Belmont occupational therapy students led the food stations and helped to ensure each participant was successful.
