Registration is now open for a series of kids’ cooking classes that will be taught in the new kitchen at the OSU Extension Office in Tillamook.
“Kids in the Kitchen” is a seven-week program that uses USDA’s MyPlate to encourage young people to eat healthier meals and snacks as a result of hands-on cooking experiences.
Beginning on Wednesday, Jan. 31, students from fourth to sixth grades are invited to come along for fun games and activities about cooking and healthy eating. The classes aim to teach students how to prepare simple, healthy foods they can make for themselves and their family members.
Classes run from 3:30 to 5 pm each Wednesday through March 14 at the OSU Extension office, 4506 Third Street in Tillamook. There is no charge for the class, but registration is limited to 12 students.
To register, call 503-842-3433 or drop by the Extension office no later than Tuesday, Jan. 23.
