OSU Extension Offers “Kids in the Kitchen” Cooking Workshop

 

            Kids ages 9 to 12 are invited to attend a two-day cooking school where they will learn the basics of food preparation along with a working knowledge of what it means to eat nutritiously. 

            The “Kids in the Kitchen” cooking school is scheduled for June 20 and 21st and will be held at the OSU Extension Conference Center, located at 2500 NE 63rd Street, OKC, OK 73111.  The cooking school will start at 9:00 am and conclude at 1:00 pm both days.  Participants will learn basic cooking and food safety by working in small groups to prepare a variety of dishes that will be served for lunch.

            “It’s important that kids know not only how to prepare their food but also how to make smart healthy choices,” commented Amanda Ford, Oklahoma County OSU Extension Family and Consumer Sciences Educator and Registered Dietitian.  “Along with taking responsibility for their own diets and nutrition, cooking is a life skill that teaches math and reading skills and boosts confidence.”

            Pre-registration fee of $35 is required for the workshop no later than June 16th and space is limited.  In order to be considered enrolled you must send payment to Oklahoma County OSU Extension Service, 2500 N.E. 63rd St., OKC, OK 73111.
