Cooking with Kids is direct education experience preparing and tasting healthy foods through an evidence based curriculum. The Nutrition Facilitator teaches 5 lessons that will help increase the probability that students will eat more fruits and vegetables and become more physically active. Students in grades K and 3rd will participate in fruit or vegetable taste testing lessons which incorporate math, botany, social studies and literacy. In addition to the taste testing lessons, the 5th/6th grade students will learn to cook using the featured fruit or vegetable. The hands-on cooking and tasting lessons promote affordable healthy foods through fruits and vegetables that grow in Michigan.
In elementary schools, the Nutrition Facilitator models free or low-cost physical activities and discusses the importance of nutrition and physical activity together.
