Children’s Hospital joins Common Threads in celebrating Cooking For Life Month

We’re getting a healthy start to 2018 with Common Threads by celebrating Cooking for Life month, and a commitment to nutrition and healthy cooking.

Children’s Healthy Schools Program partners with Common Threads to educate children on nutrition and well being, empower them to make healthier choices, and become change agents in their families, schools and communities.

Through our partnership, youth from 19 Pittsburgh-area school and out-of-school time programs participate in Small Bites nutrition education program and Cooking Skills and World Cuisine after-school program. These efforts are improving the eating habits of children and families, and contributing to a culture of health in both school and out-of-school time environments.

Join us in celebrating Cooking for Life month and share our commitment to improving the health and wellness of our communities. For healthy recipes, family games, nutrition tips and more, check out,
