Introduction and Overview

Team Nutrition Cooks! is a series of cooking-based nutrition activities for out-of-school and afterschool programs, for children around ages 8 to 12 years old. These activities can spark children’s interest in trying new foods and help empower them with skills for independence. Cooking can also help kids become more interested in making healthy food choices that can help build and support good eating habits throughout their lifetime.

Team Nutrition Cooks! contains five modules, and each module is centered around a kid-friendly recipe that can be prepared at your afterschool or out-of-school program site. Step-by-step instructions for each module are included in this activity guide. Modules can be done in any order you choose, and you can spread them out over the course of a week, month, or year.
