EFNEP Teaches Foods 1 Students
What does the 2020/2021 school year look like for Macon County Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program? This year Carol Pitts, Nutrition Program Assistant will be partnering with the Franklin High School Foods teachers Mrs. McClure and Mr. Viar. She will have six video lessons which will cover food safety, knife skills, healthy choices, physical activities and a cooking lesson each week.
Mrs. Carol has put together tote bags for the 75 students in Foods 1. The tote bags have liquid and dry measuring cups, measuring spoons, cutting board, meat thermometer, work book and water bottles.
The recipes that she will be teaching are:
Simple Spaghetti – where we will cover the importance of reading a recipe
Super Stir Fry – we will focus on correct knife skills
Omelets – the lesson will be on the importance of breakfast
Tuna Burgers – amazing affordable, healthy fat and very tasty
Chicken Quesadilla– simple low-fat options
Easy Skillet Lasagna – fun- so much better than hamburger helper
After the completion of the six lessons and pre and post evaluations the Foods 1 students will receive a certificate of completion and a cookbook.
