C.H.O.P. (Cooking up Healthy Options and Portions) is a Humana grant funded after school cooking program that was designed to teach middle school students to prepare healthy meals, and feel more confident in the kitchen. Recipes were created to show students that they can still eat their favorite foods and be healthy, just by making a few small changes in the ingredients. C.H.O.P. acts as a
compliment to the LSU AgCenter’s “Smart Choices” nutrition program offered during the fall. Our goal is for students to translate their nutrition knowledge into tangible skills that can make healthy eating a
habit. C.H.O.P. gives students the opportunity to put the things they’ve learned in nutrition class in to practice while becoming confident in the kitchen.
