Pirate’s snack boat
When I think of pirates, I think of scurvy. Scurvy was popular on the 7 seas and it was because they didn’t eat their fruits and veggies so no vitamin C. With the kids at diabetes camp, I did a boat balance with them. This boat had the food groups and together was 15g carbohydrates.
The chex represented “wood,” baby carrots were the “pirate pegs,” cheese was the “plank,” the grapes were the “cannonballs,” and the sunflower butter was the “ocean.” It was very interesting what the kids did with those items. One kid spread the butter on the bottom of the boat and then glued on the chex to make the deck! He used the string cheese to make a flag. It was so adorable and so cute.
