Prairie Queen Cloverbud Report from February 2021
The Prairie Queen 4H Cloverbuds meet on Sunday February 21 at 1:00 pm. The Cloverbuds had a great time on learning about different diets that people may have to be on if they are allergic to certain food or need to be on a certain diet because of other health factors. The project was to make cookies because we all love cookies. There were three different kinds of cookies made that day: sugar cookies, no bake cookies, and sugar free cookies. The Cloverbuds were shown that there are many kinds of sugar substitutes and flours that can be used to make the same thing, they just have a different taste. They were able to sample some of the different sugars. Some of them liked it and others did not. They also tasted the cocoa powder and they really did not like it. They were also able to play with a grinding stone to see how much work it takes to grind up oatmeal so that it can be used as flour. After all the cookies were made everyone was able to eat them.
