Tippecanoe 4-H — Teach LUM Students

2016-02-25 4-H Oral Hygiene 010 (2) (1280x854)Last week, Dee Nicley, extension educator for Tippecanoe County 4-H Youth Development, and Jericha Clampitt, program assistant, visited the students in the LUM After School Program to teach them about Health & Oral Hygiene.

This hands-on educational presentation first revealed to the students the amount of sugar in our beverages — and second the affects of dark drinks on our teeth. The students were given hardboiled eggs stained with a cola soft drink, a toothbrush and toothpaste.

The program demonstrated how difficult it is to remove stains from your teeth after 2016-02-25 4-H Oral Hygiene 060 (2) (1280x1280)drinking dark cola, coffee or tea. The students had a lot of fun “brushing their eggs” — and learned a lot about oral hygiene and general health as well. Thanks the Tippecanoe County 4-H Youth Development program for their continued support of LUM students.
