Some Food for Thought. Literally.

With childhood obesity more than tripling in the last 30 years, Medical City Children’s Hospital wanted a way to educate students about healthy eating habits. The kids teaching kidsSM program challenges high schoolers to create a recipe book full of healthy, flavorful snacks for elementary kids. The idea being, if we can get kids to change their ways of eating, chefs will follow suit in their ways of preparing. Because let’s face it, healthy food isn’t just good for you, it tastes good, too.

A Partnership That Gets the Whole Thing Cooking.

Medical City Children’s Hospital and the Greater Dallas Restaurant Association (GDRA) have partnered with high schools participating in Texas ProStart, a culinary program, to bring kids teaching kidsSM to fruition. Learn More
