The healthy cooking club at FUEL began last year and was a great success! We received so much positive feedback from parents and students. This upcoming year the club will consist of 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students. We are lacking some materials that will help the students be safe and successful. We would like to get supplies for this club that can stay at school and be used every year. There is something so powerful about involving students in the process of preparing healthy food; their interest and desire to try the food is immediately peaked. The club had students preparing AND eating foods like cauliflower rice stir-fry, edamame hummus, and avocado pudding! The healthy cooking club begins by discussing the ingredients and which foods they have tried or may be new to them. It is really powerful to see a child touch, smell, and taste a unique vegetable or ingredient for the first time. We spend some time learning about the positive ways that these ingredients impact our bodies. At the end of the class, each student takes home a copy of the recipe. So many families decided to make the recipe again at home. I hope that the cut-proof gloves help keep students hands safe while chopping, dicing, and slicing vegetables and fruit. The caddy will provide the cooking utensils needed in an organized and convenient way. The Veggie Bullet will allow students to transform vegetables into kid-friendly, healthier alternatives such as zucchini pasta, cauliflower crust, and sweet potato french fries. This machine does most of the work and keeps the young chefs hands safe. Thank you for considering to help me give students the knowledge and experience to prepare delicious and healthy foods.
