Virtual cooking class improves children’s nutrition knowledge

A new article published in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior highlights the benefits of a virtual cooking/nutrition program on cooking self-efficacy and nutrition knowledge

Philadelphia – WEBWIRE



Amid parental concerns regarding poor nutrition and lack of cooking skills among youth in Flint, Michigan, a team of local dietitians, chefs, and researchers created Flint Families Cook during the COVID-19 pandemic, a program for families with children ages 8-18 years old, delivered virtually to children and families in their homes.


This addition to the great educational material (GEM) collection appearing in the Journal of Nutrition Education and Behavior, published by Elsevier, reports that Flint Families Cook demonstrated success in reaching youth from families with low income and improving cooking self-efficacy, nutrition knowledge, and self-efficacy for consuming fruits and vegetables among young participants.


Flint Families Cook, co-facilitated by a chef and dietitian, encourages families to cook healthy meals together at home, using local ingredients. Through 7.5 hours of live, virtual instruction over five consecutive weeks, children and families learn proper techniques for using knives, measuring, sautéing, roasting, and baking from a chef, while a dietitian focuses on nutrition and health benefits of specific food groups and nutrients.


“One very important part of the class that is happening because of the virtual platform is that families are participating in the classes together as opposed to children participating in the class individually, apart from their family. We started to see parents becoming much more involved in the education and sitting at the table once the meals were prepared for a family dinner,” said Amy Saxe-Custack, PhD, MPH, RD, Department of Pediatrics and Human Development, Division of Public Health, Michigan State University-Hurley Children’s Hospital Pediatric Public Health Initiative, Flint, MI, USA.


The family-based, virtual format directly engages families in cooking healthy meals together and expands the program’s reach to entire households, as well as extended family and friends. In addition to holding a growing waitlist of eager families, Flint Families Cook addresses challenges with preparing and consuming healthy foods at home. Such programming is feasible and attractive to communities with similar concerns about child nutrition.

Free Virtual Panel Discussion Celebrates Women Veterans, Calls for Increased Diversity

The 11,000+ woman-led professional networking community will present a panel discussion featuring former military troops turned successful tech professionals

Sista Circle: Black Women in Tech Official Logo

SAN FRANCISCOMarch 7, 2022PRLog — Sista Circle: Black Women in Tech (SC: BWiT), a solidarity group dedicated to supporting the work of Black Women in the technology industry, today announced that Women Veterans worldwide are invited to kick off Women’s History Month with a free virtual celebration on March 16, 2022, featuring a panel discussion moderated by Isabel Céspedes, Creative Director of SC: BWiT.

The theme of the discussion is “Solidarity in Transition,” with panelists exploring issues

minority female Veterans face after separation from the military. Guests will share empowering reflections regarding their career journeys, including how non-Veterans can help mitigate potential roadblocks and setbacks for future job seekers.

SC: BWiT members will also serve as panelists, according to founder Alexandria “Lexi B.” Butler.

“It is important to highlight the diverse and complex narratives within the Black female

diaspora,” remarked Mrs. Butler. “The Black woman Veteran experience is a narrative and

identity that is not adequately highlighted. By creating this panel and choosing to spotlight this version of Black life, non-Veterans will know how to hold solidarity and unify with their Black veteran sisters. Black women must choose to understand the nuanced differences among us so that empathy can rise— and support and respect can be born among us”.

Panelists include Tracy Ferguson, US Army (Senior Engineering Manager at Twitter); LaTorya Walker, US Army (SpecTech Diversity Recruiting & Strategic Sourcer at Meta); and Renee D. Cassidy, Air Force (Manager Development Consultant- Twitter).

In a departure from the in-person events that made the SC: BWiT brand popular, organizers promise the experience is in keeping with SC: BWiT mission to provide safe and authentic spaces for Black women to discuss and organize around issues facing their communities.

“We recognized that a significant portion of our members are veterans, and we want to create a space to engage in an open conversation around transferable skills and translating military language for a tech environment,” said SC: BWiT Creative Director Isabel Cespedes. “There is much insight to be gained from these women, and all too often, recruiters pass on extremely qualified talent who happen to be veterans. I hope that this event serves as the beginning of many ongoing discussions.”
