Obesity is a growing issue in America, and it's not just adults who are battling the bulge, it's children, too. The culinary educational group, Spoons Across America, has been fighting this epidemic in the kitchen for seven years with a hands-on educational program for kids. The program is called the Dinner Party Project because what child doesn't love a party? The classes, currently held in 50 cities around the country, teach children about nutrition, whole foods, organic produce, where food comes from, and how to cook in a healthy way. If this program could be available in all schools, what a world of difference it would make to the future health of these kids and their families.
What are you cooking for dinner tonight? Are your kids going to help you in the kitchen?
