4-H Foods and Nutrition Project

Do you like to lick the spoon? Are you hanging out in the kitchen ready for the first cookie out of the oven? Or do you like to help prepare a fresh garden salad? If you have a hankering for cooking or just like good food, then these units are for you. In the Foods and Nutrition Project, you will have fun learning how to cook the basics and then advance to gourmet and international meals. You will learn the heritage of many foods as well as consumer buying skills to get the most from your money. In addition, you will also learn how to make healthy snacks and modify recipes to fit a healthy life style.
