CHS students learn about nutrition, sample vegetables

Campbellsville High School students recently learned about nutrition and sampled some root vegetables.

 

Angie Freeman, expanded foods and nutrition program assistant at Taylor County Extension Office, recently visited Deanna Campbell’s classes.

 

Freeman discussed basic cooking skills and taught students the proper way to cut vegetables.

 

To test their new skills, Freeman helped students make a roasted root vegetable dish. Students cut up potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes and more. They then mixed some olive oil into the dish and baked the vegetables.

 

She also talked to students about nutrition labels found on food packages. The labels help a chef know how much of each food to buy, she said, and how many calories and vitamins are found in a serving.

 

Freeman said labels can also tell a person what is found in the food, and how much makes one serving.
