Kids Kitchen

Kids Kitchen is a five-session cooking and skill development program developed by CHEP and the Greater Saskatoon Catholic Schools. Each session runs one afternoon per week, for five weeks, at each participating elementary school.

Kids Kitchen provides a welcome complement to existing nutrition education in schools, providing a fun, educational experience of healthy cooking and eating. Kids Kitchen has been identified as an example of a best practice in food programming for children.
