Cooking Matters for Child Care Professionals teaches both home- and center-based early childhood professionals about healthy meal preparation and creating a positive food environment for the children in their care. This hands-on, discussion-based training covers topics such as choosing healthy foods that appeal to children, encouraging positive mealtime attitudes, safe cooking with confidence, and menu management on a budget. You will engage in cooking and preparing nutritious meals that meet the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) guidelines.

The training is free of cost to you. You will receive a manual highlighting the information covered in the course and a variety of recipes, essential kitchen equipment, and 8 hours of continuing education in health, safety, and nutrition.

The training location is at Early Childhood Council of La Plata County in Durango and is appropriate for in-home and center-based early childhood professionals, including classroom teachers and assistants, food-service staff, directors and owners, home visitors, etc. For safety reasons, there are no children permitted at the training. Lunch and snacks will be prepared and provided as part of the training.
