Welcome Parents to my website! Your students will be taking part in a class that will change them forever. Your children will try foods that they have never had before and prepare foods that you may never have made for them. They will also be educated on how to live a healthy, sustainable lifestyle. Sadly, childhood obesity is at an all-time high. It's time that we as parents, educators and the community stop this downward spiral. If this isn't enough alone, you might be interested in the link between poor nutrition and lower academic success. Here's a short video with Jamie Oliver talking about childhood obesity.

Besides nutrition, your child by the end of the semester will see food through many different perspectives. Whether that is learning about its cultural or religious significance to the economics of the global food trade. Their minds will open up about the world around them through the study of food.
