Cooking Matters at the Store
Cooking Matters at the Store, includes two versions: one for adults and one tailored to WIC parents. Participants learn to find whole grains, buy fruits and vegetables on a budget, compare unit prices, and read food labels in order to buy ingredients for balanced family meals.
Cooking Matters at Home
Cooking Matters at Home includes eight different workshops for parents which can be offered on their own or as part of a series. These sessions share information about interpreting nutrition labels, healthy cooking techniques and food choices, and how to substitute ingredients when faced with picky eaters or insufficient food. Becoming informed shoppers, confident cooks, and meal planners not only improves household nutrition and relieves budgets, but also enables the next generation to acquire the nutrition knowledge, skills, and experience needed for good health.
