Cooking at Kennedy Middle School

Can you make a healthier pizza? Yes, you can! Healthy Waltham’s new chef instructor Reva Haselkorn led a six-week after school class at Kennedy Middle School discussing and implementing healthy eating concepts and cooking techniques. At their last class, the  students put their knowledge to good use and celebrated with a healthy pizza party. They made pizza from homemade whole wheat dough (prepared ahead of time by Chef Reva), mixed up homemade sauce, and roasted sweet potatoes, broccoli, onions and peppers for toppings. The class made a healthy version of “soda” by mixing a little 100% juice with plain soda water (an easy trick to cut down on sugar). Previous recipes in the course included fruit salad, breakfast burritos, vegan chocolate cake, green smoothies, baked chips and fresh salsa, and oven-fried chicken nuggets with cole slaw. The after school cooking program is offered at both Kennedy and McDevitt Middle Schools through a “PEP” Physical Education Program grant. To read more about Chef Reva, read her bio here.
