Spoons Across America

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?

Spoons Across America is a fantastic organization with a great mission as childhood obesity is a growing problem. I recently purchased a cookbook they developed with the help of the Wheat Foods Council and it addresses this same issue. The best is the cookbook benefits SAA and it’s only $3.50! You can get it at www.wheatfoods.org. It's called "Food for Thought from Parents to Children" and it features healthy recipes from a celeb chef, Chef Gale Gand, and everyday parents. Parents can use the educational book to get their kids involved in preparing healthy meals and snacks and teach them about nutrition, serving sizes and where their food comes from in the process. I highly recommend it!

i really to like that there are so many more educational things that can teach people the best way to eat to be healthy - and they aren't things that are hard or expensive which i think is a big reason that people aren't healthy. i hope that this foundation spreads across the country and raises awareness!
