ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA – Winthrop University’s human nutrition students teamed with Subway® this fall to talk with families about good nutrition decisions.

The “Share the Color” food workshops were held at restaurants around the Upstate and were designed to teach children the importance of making colorful fruits and vegetables part of their daily meals and snacks.

Dietetic internship graduate students led the workshops in Greenville, Spartanburg and Rock Hill.

“The fall season has been a great time to enjoy our plentiful local produce,” said Stephanie Nielsen, director of the dietetic internship program at Winthrop. “We want to encourage kids to explore the many colorful foods that are essential to their overall health.”

Timed around World Food Day on Oct. 16 and World Sandwich Day on Nov. 3 , the food workshops covered basic nutrition information with a hands-on sub making activity and free lunch. Children also received a take-home food explorer coloring book.
