We spent this week learning about how to make healthy choices. The cafeterias at Cox are incredible, but it is very easy to make unhealthy choices at breakfast and lunch. I asked the interns to reflect on what they have learned, as well as recap their week.
This week during my job was great. I was working on both sections A and B. First I was checking to see if there was any mail. After checking the mail on both sections I checked to see if there were any papers inside the printers. After lunch I usually double check the mail centers and sometimes my co-workers give me some boxes to deliver. This week during my lunch break I was learning how to eat healthier food. This week I had green beans, grilled salmon, sweet potatoes, and broccoli which I was thinking look like trees. –Enoes
I learned about healthy eating. Make half your plate fruits and vegetables. Drink water instead of sugary drinks. At work I cleaned the equipment, I checked the locker room, I checked the studios, I did the laundry and I folded some towels. I had fun showing Mr. Black what I do at work. This weekend I will watch T.V. and play video games and watch YouTube. –Johnny
I learned that you have to stay healthy at all times so you won’t gain weight. I learned that I need to start eating more green vegetables and fruit. My week at work was great. I went to Cindy’s retirement party yesterday. We surprised her real good yesterday. I delivered packages on my floors. We had a meeting after I got through delivering packages with Denita. When I went to Cindy’s retirement party she gave me a mason jar with candy in it. She gave me some California Rolls sushi. My sister is coming tomorrow from Denver, Colorado. Me and my mother and my sister are having a party for my grandma tomorrow. I am so excited that my sister is coming to town. -Maurice
This week we learned about how to choose healthier foods from the menu for breakfast and lunch. I eat better foods everyday to keep me strong. My week at work I did something nice for my Teacher Traci since it’s her birthday today. Me and my coworker gave her a gift bag with a singing balloon, candy, a coffee mug, and I made her a smoothie. -Khalial
I learned about healthy foods. I learned that vitamins help your body stay healthy. Apples are a good healthy snack. Working in the kitchen with Mike was great. I learned where the foods are stored in the freezer. I learned how to prepare foods and sprinkle season salt and pepper on the meat. Meat is a protein. -Kedar
This week was so busy. We had a lot of people coming in the café. I worked so hard this week. Everybody was working so hard to keep the cafe clean. This weekend I will be with my friends at Five Points. I learned about energy, carbohydrates, nutrients, vitamins, digestion, protein, fatty foods and that you have to have healthy food choices to keep your body healthy. –Usuaya
I hope you all have a fantastic weekend!
