“What’s to Eat,” was the Grandparent University course led in mid June by Barbara Brown, OCES Food Specialist. Children, ages 7-12 years of age, and an OSU grandparent alum learned the importance of thoughtful eating and tasting, culture and food choices, some basic cooking skills, food safety and what goes into a healthy lunch. Then they put it all into practice making onigiri (rice balls) and bento boxes. It was fun, it was educational and it all tasted great!
