It all starts in the kitchen: Learning how to eat, cook and shop for the right ingredients, as well as when to eat.

The Teaching Kitchen in the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta Center for Advanced Pediatrics offers an encouraging wellness environment for children living with chronic illnesses. Classes are community-based and family-centered, and kids and adults can learn the health—and often cost-saving benefits—of preparing their own meals.

The Teaching Kitchen is a chance for kids and adults to take classes taught by a chef, who is accompanied by a registered dietitian or educator, in addition to volunteers. Teaching Kitchen classes are a fun and educational experience, as they are hands-on, and demonstrations are conducted weekly, monthly, quarterly and seasonally.

Each course's curriculum provides:

  • Nutrition education
  • Meal-planning tips
  • Culinary skills
  • Food safety
  • Food variety
  • Social interaction
  • Financial management
  • Recipe handouts
  • Food tastings
