The Smarty Pants Chefs is a supplemental health, wellness and nutrition education program that uses the culinary arts as our vehicle to promote healthy choices in food and physical activity.
Our goal at the Smarty pants Chefs is to empower the children and their families to make healthy changes. These changes in habits prepare children with skills they need to succeed in the future.
We envision a world where connecting Health and Wellness to Social Emotional Learning maximizes the opportunities for a healthier, happier generation of children.
For the first time in history children may not outlive their parents. Kids are now subject to chronic diseases that Adults have. For several years there has been an increase in the following health conditions that can be food related:
- Childhood Obesity
The SPC targets children in preschool to high-school. You provide the students! We provide the experience!
Our resources are designed to be used in a multitude of settings. Below are a few suggestions:
- Community Centers & Civic Organizations
Family & Children Service Agencies
Faith Based organizations & Churches
After-school & Out of School programs
Child Care Centers & Camps
We believe that establishing a foundation for a healthy lifestyle in children at a young age, will encourage them to continue these habits into adulthood. Research supports this fact!
