Summer Chili, Apple Carrot Salad, and Pumpkin Pancakes are just a few tasty recipes prepared by area kids this past week during University of Illinois Extension's Illinois Junior Chefs program in Fulton, Mason, Peoria, and Tazewell Counties. Junior Chefs is a cooking school developed and taught by Illinois Nutrition Education Programs team members through five hands-on lessons. In Peoria and Tazewell Counties Illinois, 4-H teen teachers join the team of instructors. Lessons focus on healthy food choices and important cooking skills that will stick with them for years to come.

Illinois Junior Chefs is a hands-on, interactive program that students love! Students received a certificate and cookbook with all of the recipes and important educational handouts to take home and share with their families.

University of Illinois Extension's Illinois Nutrition Education Programs provides nutrition education and healthy living classes to Illinois individuals and families. Illinois Junior Chefs is sponsored in part by the Walmart Foundation's Youth Voice: Youth Choice grant.

Illinois Nutrition Education Programs is funded by USDA's Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) and Expanded Food and Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP). University of Illinois Extension provides equal opportunities in funding and employment.
