Get Kids Cooking
We wanted to share a great article that Health magazine posted on Nov. 27th – Want Kids to Eat Better? Get Them Cooking, by HealthDay reporter Alex Kramer.
Research shows that getting kids involved in the kitchen, through cooking classes or at home, may make them more likely to choose healthy foods. Cooking programs and classes for children seem to positively influence children’s food preferences and behaviors, according to the new research, helping children develop long-lasting healthy habits. EATS is proud to be offering several cooking classes at McPolin Elementary. Check out upcoming classes on our calendar.
As stated in the article posted by Health, it is important to expose children to healthy foods in a positive way. Creating habits and behaviors at a young age is the most important part of it. This is what EATS is all about.
