Healthy Cooking & Eating for Kids

DOES GOOD NUTRITION IMPROVE SCHOLARSHIP?


Good news!  Because of genorous donations  through Go Fund Me and other sources, we have raised a portion of the funds needed to meet our goal by January 31st.  Only about $10,000 is needed to purchase the Edible Education equipment to meet the needs of our students!  Can you help?

A recent survey entitled “Hunger in Our Schools” reported that 59% of children from low-income families come to school hungry.  In areas of Arkansas, the percentage is likely higher, for the importance of eating healthy foods, especially fresh plant-based ones which should form at least 2/3 of a healthy plate, has not been stressed due to the high cost of fresh produce , the relatively low cost of “carb” loaded and unhealthy processed foods, and a lack of nutritional training.  Little Scholars Schools (LSS), Little Rock, a private school, is addressing this national plague!

LSS’ recent study found over 90% of its students enjoyed eating garden produce dishes IF “kid-friendly” recipes were used AND they grew, harvested, AND were involved in preparing the dish.  Herein is LSS’ challenge:  procuring a safe, size-appropriate, mobile kitchen with which hands-on, healthy food preparation can be practiced by school children.

Kitchen a la Carte by Edible Education is an excellent answer, it accommodating up to 10 students at a time to smell, taste, chop, bake, and cook a wide variety of simple dishes.  Even though many have been generous, LSS still needs $ 10,000. to fully implement this innovative proto-type, which will provide students experiential lessons in food preparation and engrain healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime.  Clearly, LSS needs your help, so it can help its students be better nourished and become better scholars.  Can we depend on your support?

WITH YOUR HELP, LSS WILL SETTLE THE MATTER!
