Chop chop, stir stir, sniff sniff, sizzle sizzle …. YUM YUM
From the cutting board to the lunch table, the kids in Philly’s Lea Elementary School are learning nutrition the fun way. Through an after school program run by Penn’s Agatston Urban Nutrition Initiative, nutrition educator Aurora Coons teaches students the basics of cooking, while also teaching them about healthy eating—a fresh alternative to the corner markets and fast food restaurants that pepper the neighborhood.
In this video produced by WHYY Media Labs along with Lea Elementary School, Coons and some of her students demonstrate the joy that goes into cooking healthy food.Header Photo: Flickr
