Hello Flipany Friends,
We are excited to announce that are Cooking Matters for kids has begun at Nova Eisenhower Elementary in Davie. We are working with two fantastic 2nd grade classes who seemed very enthusiastic and motivated to learn. Chef Jeff and Georgia, our nutritionist volunteer, shared information on the importance of “My Plate” and on the different food groups. The student’s participated and asked general questions about cooking and nutrition. For our cooking portion of the class, we made Black Bean and Vegetable Quesadillas which the students loved. They were able to help the chef cut vegetables and learn about food and knife safety.
Stay tune for Week 2 where we will make Fruit Smoothies and Veggie Wraps!
