Healthy Eating from Science to Plate
In a world of conflicting food messages, how do we know which foods are good for us? What is the evidence for why you might want to incorporate foods like leafy greens, beans, and berries more often into the meals you prepare? How do you construct a plate that tastes good, meets the nutrient and health requirements for an individual or group, and is culturally appropriate and responsibly sourced?
Planning and implementing healthy meals for customers, clients, family, and friends can pose a challenge. In this course we explore the relationship between diet and health by examining the habitual eating patterns that have been shown to prevent chronic diet-related conditions. We learn about the nutritional components of the foods and beverages commonly present in these healthy eating patterns and to implement strategies that will help those we serve make better food choices.
This course is specifically designed for high school students with an interest in cooking and healthy eating.
