Healthy Cooking Classes
Our Central School Before and After Care Director agreed to offer healthy, nutritious cooking classes during her program. The kids loved making/eating healthy food items!

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Preparing healthy food items together during an after school cooking class.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

More children are interested in healthier food choices. I enjoy seeing them get excited to be able to prepare those food items with the help of an adult.

What challenges did you face and how did you overcome them?

All kids love junk food, so it was a challenge to convince them that healthy snacks can be nutritious and delicious. I think because they were offered the opportunity to make it themselves they were more apt to try it.
