Cooking classes aim to give elementary students basic food prep skills

To help give children the best start in healthy eating, Public Health held a series of cooking classes for Grade 6 students in Ingersoll as part of a pilot project to teach children the basics about preparing nutritious snacks and meals. During the series of five cooking classes with Jed Lau, caterer and personal chef, the students learned basic knife and safe food handling skills and were introduced to simple and healthy foods and snacks.
