Get a Move On – Trip Around the World Part 2

tzatzikiOur first stop in inspiring kids to eat fun foods from around the world is Greece.  A country on the Mediterranean Sea, Greece is known for lots of yummy foods like olives, grapes and cucumber sauce called “tzatziki” (pronounced zot-zee-kee). Greek people love to eat tzatziki with veggie sticks or bread – and kids love to help their parents make it.

Try it for yourself! You’ll need:

  • 1 cucumber chopped really small
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt (or…minced garlic and a little table salt)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Mix the four ingredients together – kids are great mixers, so get them involved. Have fun learning about how Greece is made up of over 1,400 islands – and is home of the very first Olympics – while munching on carrot sticks and tzatziki. As they say in Greece – OPA! (Which means “hooray!”)

Next stop? Kenya!

This is part of the Get a Move On series – keeping your child healthy through activity and movement.
