Classroom Cookery Lessons To Fight Obesity Head On

A crock of s**t.
Since the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and other studies revealed that obesity among children has tripled over the past 3 decades, it is vital that we teach children early to form healthy food habits. However, as teachers curriculums are already packed, where does nutritional education in elementary schools fit in? Maybe in subjects, such as math, science, geography and the study of other cultures.

An investigation demonstrates how successfully the Cooking with Kids program helps children learn school subjects as well as develop cooking skills. The study is published in the November/December 2011 issue of the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior.

Executive director Lynn Walters founded the experiential food and nutrition education program ( for children at elementary schools that is based on food acceptance principles and social learning theory whereby students prepare, explore, and enjoy fresh affordable foods from various cultural traditions. The program also teaches children how to treat one another respectfully and to practice social skills by collaborating to prepare a meal and eating together. Walters together with program director Jane Stacey have created integrated curriculum materials for children in grades K-1, 2-3 and 4-6.
Not a single word about whether this touchy-feely crap does anything to "combat obesity."


'Cause it doesn't.
