Overview

More than 200 children from a northeast Calgary school spent the day learning how to prepare healthy meals and fight against childhood obesity.

  • Calgary Board of Education/Colonel J. Fred Scott Elementary School

How it works

Executive sous chef Will Kwong teaches the students how easy it is to make food that is not just healthy but also easy to prepare.
Along with nutrition and cooking classes the students are also introduced to different kinds of physical exercise to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The students also leave with a tote bag filled with nutritional and fitness information, sporting equipment, healthy snacks and games to help continue the learning at home.

What’s the impact?

Students learn about making healthy choices and soon find out that healthy snacks are just as tasty as junk food.
