While the original Teen2Chef program has an abundance of nutrition education during each class, the Kitchen Takeover virtual program has a stronger focus on food skills, with some nutrition education peppered through each week to ensure that the class stays focused and engaged with the content. Each class serves up short “Nutrition Moments” where the participants discusses nutrition topics, while their food is cooking.
Topics include macronutrients, fibre, hydration, salt, and sugar.
