"Play With Your Food" Cooking Class

Posted: Updated:

Even though its Saturday, some kids went to school to learn about one subject they normally don't talk about in the classroom.

Kids were concocting some culinary creations today at Century High School for the 'Play With Your Food' event.

Elementary students and their parents came to learn how to prepare easy and healthy snacks using nutritious ingredients.

They made quesadillas and learned how to safely cut fruits and veggies.

They also stressed the importance of washing your hands, and used a black light to show kids the germs they could be spreading to their food.

One grandmother brought her grand kids and says the name of the class was what caught her attention.

"I love the title of this thing, 'Play with Your Food.' Having grown up in a generation of don't play with your food, there is a certain amount of rebellion that goes with being an old person and being able to play with your food," Shirley Snyder said.

The Kohl's Cares Foundation put this event together.

The program is free to the public and they hope to have even more classes in the future.
