PURPOSE AND LEARNING OBJECTIVESPurpose: This module is a tool for Community Food Advisory volunteers to use whenteaching basic cooking skills, kitchen safety and food safety to school-age children. The module can be used with small groups of children aged 5 to 12, and may be modified for use with teens or adults as a basic learn-to-cook lesson. (Adult audiences, for example, may include teens who are living independently for the first time, or seniors who have lost a spouse).When teaching cooking skills, it is recommended to keep the group small, ideally no more than 12 participants, so that more hands-on experience and proper supervision can be provided. Inviting responsible teens or adults, such as older students, teachers or parents, to assist in supervising the children, can be really helpful when cooking with kids.The presentation module is best suited for use with children ages 9-12 years. Modifications to the content and recipes may need to be made to suit younger children. The use of additional CFA volunteers, parents, teachers, or older children for extra assistance may be helpful when using this module for youngerchildren.Each session in this module is approximately 70 to 95 minutes long (including clean-up time), and allows time for the children to acquire hands-on experience in thekitchen.This module contains 5 sessions.
