Chef D teaches nutrition lessons twice a month. The lessons focus on the four basic food groups, how to make healthy selections, and why eating healthy is important. Other topics include the importance of brushing after meals and reading labels. The key message is for the participants to learn about the healthful benefits of eating right, and the value of what they put into their bodies.
They are also given the opportunity to cook in each class. The recipes are easy to make, with easy to find items and often involve no heat to make them. All the recipes and worksheets are collected in a folder students take home at the end of the year.
