HS students learn about importance of healthy eating

NORTH BRUNSWICK -

Some North Brunswick High School students were taught about the importance of cooking and healthy eating during a special event.

A crew from Chartwells Teaching Kitchen paid the students a visit Wednesday. The students were taught about where the ingredients of their favorite foods come from, as well as the importance of knowing how to cook.

“The goal is to equip students with some of the skills and tools they need to take a recipe and cook it at home and just inspire healthy eating and healthy behaviors,” says Chartwells Teaching Kitchen manager Joyce Sun.

The lesson came at a great time. 

Student Randy Arronis told News 12 New Jersey that he’d rather eat junk food, but is trying to be healthier. Student Aaron Yuhas said that he only knows how to cook macaroni and cheese out of a box.
