Morgridge Academy Students Learn about Cooking

National Jewish Health Cafeteria and Nutrition Services employee, Sarah Tidwell, created an after-school cooking class for students at Morgridge Academy. Her hands-on approach taught the students how to read and follow recipes, how to prepare foods safely, how to measure accurately, and how to avoid food allergy issues by reading labels. She used fun tactics to help teach what could be considered boring material. For example, instead of just having the students read labels and discuss the ingredients, they went on a treasure hunt in the dry storage area of the kitchen to look for ingredient names.
