Cooking Classes for Better Health
“Learning how to cook means you can experiment with different foods. It’s a healthier way of life. You can spend quality time with people you love.”
~ Isabella Andrews, age 9, McPolin Cooking Class for Better Health student
Why teach children how to cook?
If you teach a child to cook, you give them lifelong skills to feed themselves. Preparing a healthy meal and sharing it with others is enriching and expands health education beyond the classroom.
EATS has been teaching children how to cook in Cooking Classes for Better Health (CCBH) since 2014. Students who have participated in CCBH act like mini-chefs when they don their aprons and set up their workspaces with kitchen tools to prepare for instruction. Their confidence and enthusiasm shine as they anticipate the new recipe. They know it will be healthy, and they will be proud to take it home to share with their families. They listen as local guest chefs, some from world-class restaurants, share their experiences and cooking methods.
