Help us celebrate our 10th anniversary!
Kids Cooking @ Home
Kids Cooking For Life launched a new program, Kids Cooking @ Home, a series of virtual cooking classes committed to healthy eating and home cooking - all kids led.
Kids Cooking @ Home instills confidence and independence to prepare healthy home cooked meals for the family based on Kids Cooking For Life’s curriculum on nutrition education and essential skill sets. The program serves kids in low income communities and in Title 1 schools.
Students receive their own basic cooking kits with all the ingredients needed for the lessons and will utilize their school laptops to partake in this experiential learning. An experienced Kids Cooking For Life teacher will guide them through recipe reading, measuring, chopping and mixing which will end with a delicious and healthy meal for the family.
The program is four weeks long, each weekly class offering a Kids Cooking For Life curriculum based lessons curated around Kids Cooking For Life’s four pillars of healthy eating:
Be Sugar Smart
Eat the Rainbow
Total up on Whole Grains
Lean on Protein
Cooking is a great way to incorporate textbook knowledge of culture, chemistry, mathematics, agriculture and geography.
The pandemic has ushered us to bring cooking education into the students’ kitchens where the impact is even greater. Through Kids Cooking @ Home virtual connections are made straight from students’ kitchen countertop to ours and we are thrilled at the possibility of a bigger impact.
