Chefs for Kids Program offered at Cambridge Recreation Center
The Chefs for Kids program will be offered in July at the Cambridge Recreation Center located at 3930 Cambridge Street, LV 89119. The class dates are July 10, 17 and 24 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Children between the ages of 6-9 are welcome to attend these free classes.
During the classes, the children will learn about myplate.gov and the various food groups, where to find sugar in drinks and snacks and how to make a healthful snack—which is a hands-on activity.
The Chefs for Kids program is a joint venture of the American Culinary Federation Chefs of Las Vegas and University of Nevada Cooperative Extension. This program works to eliminate malnutrition and hunger through education and awareness. Often in a society where television and computers bring information to our doorstep, we assume that simple facts like knowing that a pear grows on a tree or that a balanced diet is essential to good health throughout a lifetime are well known by everyone. Surprisingly, many children lack the essential nutrition knowledge necessary to fight personal battles against poor eating habits.
