Early Care and Education Specialist YaeBin Kim received the First Place National Award in the human development/family relationships program category for her “Little Books and Little Cooks” nutrition and early literacy program from the National Extension Association of Family and Consumer Sciences a few weeks ago at the Association’s annual meeting in Lexington, Ken.

The Little Books and Little Cooks Program was developed by Kim and is based on the premise that cooking offers children a way to learn pre-kindergarten skills and good nutrition, and to try nutritious foods. Parents also learn about good nutrition, positive feeding practices and positive parent-child interaction skills by reading, cooking and eating together with their children.
