CULINARY & NUTRITION
Helping to ensure that children are making healthy food and activity choices is part of our holistic approach to children’s well-being at The Children’s Home.
Good nutrition plays a big part of a child’s physical, mental and emotional well-being.
A new initiative by The Children’s Home is our Mighty Meals program! Many of the kids we serve live at or below, some as much as 200% below, poverty level. We help many children during the week with take-home meals called “Power Packs” but over the weekend many of our kids still face what scholars call “Food Insecurities.”
Our kids simply call it “being hungry.” Will you help? Click here for more information about our Mighty Meals program and how you can get involved with our fight against child hunger!
As part of our holistic approach to children’s well-being at The Children’s Home, The Nutrition Council has become an important part of our organization.
Children and their families have many needs, and healthy eating often does not rise to the top of the list. With established ties between nutrition, attention spans and cognitive development, ensuring that children and their families make healthier food and lifestyle choices is a much-needed service, particularly for children at risk.
The Nutrition Council provides scientifically sound nutrition information, practical tips, and recipes to help consumers put nutrition science into action.
