Cooking Matters
Cooking Matters Handouts

The Cooking Matters campaign is helping end childhood hunger by inspiring families to make healthy, affordable food choices. Their programs teach parents and caregivers with limited food budgets to shop for and cook healthy meals – building a world where healthy eating choices are available for everyone. The following resources, available from Cooking Matters curricula, provide easy-to-understand information about sugars and fats.

Most recipes do not need to be followed exactly, and can be adjusted based on what’s in season, what you have on hand, taste preferences, ingredients on sale, and healthier cooking methods. Use the following recipe frameworks to make delicious meals that work for you.
