DIY Family Recipes

Make it a family affair by preparing these recipes created by the IAK team! Invite your children to help prepare the family meal. Your children will have fun helping you, making memories, and learning how to make healthy choices. While in the kitchen practice literacy, math, and science skills. Reading and following a recipe assists in literacy. Measuring or counting ingredients is part of math skills. Finally, observing how all of the ingredients come together to make their meal is a science lesson. Find family recipe videos HERE. Have fun!



Blender Bike

The purpose of the Blender Bike at Family Night events is to show parents what their child learned during the Blender Bike Class during the day.  Students learn how many servings of dairy a day is recommended, MyPlate, reading food labels, and the energy it takes to make the Blender Bike operate to make a smoothie!
For 3rd-5th grade students, a pre-test and 60-day post-test are required.



Family Fitness Night

IAK is available to participate in Family Fitness Nights where children and parents are physically active together at the school.  Working collaboratively with your school, fitness stations will be setup around the school for your students and their families to participate and learn new ideas about how to be physically active as a family at home.
