Pop-Up Cooking Matters

This program of nutrition education helps teens learn how to pick out healthy foods on a budget.  With a one-time classroom visit from ACH health educators, 9th – 12th grade students receive a virtual tour of the grocery store with food examples reviewed from various aisles (fruits & vegetables, meat & dairy, breads & grains).  Topics include how to shop for healthy items, how to read food labels, and how to budget for meals.  There is also discussion on making healthier choices in regard to sugar, sodium, fat and calories. 

  • Pop-Up Cooking Matters aligns with many of the Arkansas Department of Education standards for Health and Wellness instruction.
