Fighting Child Obesity with Common Threads and Kenmore

Fighting Child Obesity with Common Threads and Kenmore


Common Threads is a non-profit
Our mission is to reduce childhood obesity We think the best way to do that is to
really get the kids cooking when they’re young. They’re creating, they’re the
little chefs that are making this interesting food If you like vegetables
you can take it and turn it your own way that’s what’s important about cooking
many times the kitchens at the schools are not very well equipped. There’s not a
lot of fresh ingredients cooking going on A lot of things that are frozen and thrown
in the oven, so when we can get the appliances and use those in the cooking
classes, it is really really helpful The thing is we want to both teach nutrition
and cooking They see that they’re making this food in class, it’s quick, it is easy
and we hear a lot back from the parents that they say the kids are going home
and they want to cook
