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 6 and 7 at the OSU Extension Conference Center, 2500 NE 63.
The cooking school will start at 9 a.m. and conclude at 1 p.m. 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,” said Taylor Conner, 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.”
A pre-registration fee of $25 is required for the workshop no later than June 3, and space is limited. In order to be considered enrolled, payment must be sent to Oklahoma County OSU Extension Service, 2500 NE 63, Oklahoma City, OK 73111.
