Chefs Move to Schools pairs chefs with schools in their communities to make learning about fruits and vegetables fun. The program brings messages from the cafeteria to the classroom, teaching kids in an interactive way about food, nutrition and healthy cooking.
My former Academy of Culinary Arts pastry chef/instructor Chef Chelius (known as the "Queen of Lean" in the video) adopted Mrs. Spangler's, family and consumer sciences teacher (aka the "Queen of Green") 6th grade food class from Ocean City Intermediate School in South Jersey. They share their approach to MyPlate in the classroom and how they are helping in the fight against childhood obesity in New Jersey. Enjoy the video!
Great job to all; the teacher, all the participating 6th grade students, the school - OCIS, and of course the Chef!
