CookingSchools.com, an online directory of culinary schools, responds to an article published by the Times-Herald on December 19th, which discusses how the University of West Georgia is offering cooking classes to promote healthy eating.
According to the Times-Herald article titled “UWG Students Learn Better Nutrition on a Budget,” the University of West Georgia (UWG) recently implemented a new program called Cooking Matters in order to promote better nutrition choices on campus. The program is part of the Tanner Health System’s Community Transformation Grant, which was funded by the Centers for Disease Control. It is designed to teach students about nutrition, so they can make healthier eating decisions.
In the article, UGW Health and Wellness Promotions Coordinator Elizabeth Butts says, “Certainly college life has its own unique challenges, but nutrition is a huge part of the equation. We hope to continue positive partnerships on campus and in the community that will continue to create this type of awareness.”
Andrew Girard, a representative from CookingSchools.com, a directory of culinary schools, says it can be very hard for college students to eat healthy, but learning to cook can help. “Learning to cook gives students and young adults a better idea of what they are putting in their bodies,” he says. “Giving students the opportunity to learn more about cooking can really promote positive eating habits, which many students tend to have trouble with when living away from home. Not only is cooking a lifelong skill, it can really help people make healthier choices. It’s something everyone should learn, whether they just want to cook basic meals or elaborate dinners. CookingSchools.com can offer insight into some of the best culinary programs in the country.”
