Aunt Connie’s Ed-U-Kitchen™ was developed to address the need for families to learn nutritional behaviors that achieve and maintain healthy consumption of food.
As obesity continues to increase in young adults, so too has adult diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, become more common among overweight children.
Ed-U-Kitchen’s curriculum provides participants with an engaging, enjoyable, and sheltered learning environment that promotes increased awareness, skills and confidence in making healthy food choices.
We introduce food through hands-on, culturally relevant activities that provide instruction for independent home food preparation. By incorporating modifications of current household menus, we gain acceptance of preparing both familiar and unfamiliar foods using healthier approaches to preparation.

Cooking provides an experience where concepts become meaningful and that is when learning takes place and knowledge is retained. Our personal experience and research confirms, developing a healthy lifestyle builds self-esteem, reinforces good decision making skills and promotes conceptual thinking. Knowledge is retained thru the hands-on experience that has been proven to assist individuals with making positive choices in other areas of their lives.
