Recently, I had the privilege of teaching some children’s cooking classes at my job as Food Director of Prevention magazine. Rodale, the publisher, has a Take your Kids to Work Day, where the kids participate in craft, fitness and food activities for a day. My contribution was, of course, food and it was a home run!
It was a privilege since I felt like I was playing hooky because I was having so much fun teaching these amazing kids. I had four classes of 11 kids ages 6 to 13, back-to-back, teaching them about food styling, creating a better salad and making your own salad dressing with just three ingredients. It was such a joy to see how interested and enthusiastic they were and how smart regarding food and nutrition.
