During each class, we discuss topics like proper hydration, sugar, sleep habits, macronutrients, balanced meals, snack choices, and nutrition facts label reading. We teach your children how to make good choices about what foods they put in their bodies. They will learn basic concepts about foods that are bad for them and what are the good foods that give their body nutrients to function properly.
In 2015, the New Mexico Department of Health stated 25.6% of kindergarten students and 34.4% of third graders were overweight or obese in New Mexico. Through the regular class and seminars held for parents, we work to bring awareness about childhood obesity and help parents and kids better understand nutrition concepts. Our goal is to help your child understand that a healthy lifestyle is more than just working out; ultimately it starts in the kitchen. Learning at a young age how to adopt healthy eating habits sets your child up for success and a healthy and positive relationship with food.
