Orientation to the workshop resources
Welcome to the Team Nutrition Child Care Culinary Workshop resource page. The resources were developed as part of a USDA Team Nutrition Training Grant to train child care food service staff on planning and preparing meals and snacks that comply with the Dietary Guidelines and My Pyramid. The instruction provided in these resources is divided into seven sections:
- Workshop Introduction
- Role Model
Each section can be used as a stand-alone lesson and can be viewed in any order. However, we recommend you start with the Workshop Introduction before viewing any of the other sections. Printable workbook pages and video clips may be used with individuals/groups or for a staff training.
- If you are an individual or a group that is using the resources to develop personal knowledge or skills, go to the instructions for "How to view as individual/group" located within each section.
- If you plan to use the resources to conduct a staff training, go to the instructions for "How to view for a staff training" located within each section.
(Orientation to the workshop resources) We recommend you to start here before viewing any of the other sections.
If you are interested in hosting a training, the Educator's Workbook provides the script and details you will need to conduct the various sections of the workshop. The pages on the left side of the document are the Educator's Workbook and parallel the pages on the right side of the workbook, which are the Chef's Workbook pages. The workshop can be taught as one hour RECIPE "combo" lessons or a series of one hour lessons.
