To celebrate the end of a 6-week long Youth Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP), taught by our OSU Extension, Franklin County staff, more than 70 fourth-grade students from Groveport Elementary School used their pedal power to make fruit smoothies! After helping prepare the ingredients, the students took turns riding the 4-H Smoothie Bike, which powered an attached blender. This interactive activity also helped to reinforce what they had just learned about healthy food choices and the importance of daily physical activity.
