Oberlin Hosts Healthy Kids Workshop

Oberlin hosted its first “Healthy Kids in the Bon Appétit Kitchen” class, a nutrition and culinary education program designed to teach and empower children to make healthy food choices for themselves and their communities. 25 children from the Oberlin community were in attendance.Working with Bon Appétit chefs across the country, Healthy Kids educators teach hands-on cooking classes for kids by turning cafés or campus gardens into interactive classrooms, and by demonstrating how fruits and vegetables can be transformed into a healthy meal.In this course, attendees learned about the six parts of a plant and where food comes from. Chef Manager Matt Krasnevich also led a taste test of mango, kiwi, and mango salsa verde. He also demonstrated how to “make pizza dough and sauce from scratch.” Each child made their own garden pizza and rainbow fruit kebab, which they finally enjoyed with their parents in Biggs Commons.
