Free Food Education Workshop for 4th and 5th Grades!

The Beecher Foundation is offering a free 2.5 hour workshop for fourth and fifth graders in which they will teach kids how to read nutrition labels, how to make healthy food choices, how to shop, and how to cook a healthy dinner for their family. I brought this workshop to my daughter's school last year and I was wildly impressed. Kids really learned so much about junk food marketing, portion size, the importance of reading labels, and how to cook from an engaging well-managed instructor. These are skills that will stay with them for a lifetime. 

More information on the workshop is here:  https://beechersfoundation.org/youth-programs/

Thanks and please share!
