Our hope at the end of the 12 weeks, is that you will have gained new cooking skills, added fresh healthy recipes to your weekly meals and of course, taken a seat at the dinner table more often.

Why is this program good for you and your family? 1) When you purchase, prepare and portion foods at home, you have more control over the quality, nutrition content and quantity. 2) Families who dine together tend to have healthier diets. They eat more fruits and vegetables, drink more milk, less soda and eat less fried food. As a result they have a higher intake of key nutrients including: calcium, iron, vitamins, fiber, and less saturated fat, cholesterol, trans fat and fat. 3) You will save money. According to Restaurants and Institutions, Americans spend 25% of their meals away from home and 46% of their food dollar. That's a huge investment on something thing that has the potential to contribute towards long term health problems including difficulty maintaining a healthy weight, increased risk for diabetes and heart disease. 4) The average American has 12 "go to" recipes in their cooking portfolio.
