On Wednesday afternoon, our elementary CVVA members had their second Cooking Club of the year! Students learned about nutrition - what constitutes a balanced meal, calories, nutrients, etc. They were then tasked with creating a 500-calorie meal that had to meet certain protein, fat, iron, and vitamin D requirements. There was a lot of math going on!
