(1)PREGNANT TEENS LEARN HEALTHY COOKING
“Teens are often known for eating junk food and sweets, which may give them short boosts of energy, but does not give them the nutrition they need.
When those teens are pregnant, nursing or feeding young children, it is even more important for them to eat balanced meals and be healthy role models for their kids, say teachers at Crossroads High School, a small school for pregnant teens and young mothers.
The tots attend preschool on the campus, while their moms take regular high school courses in adjacent classrooms.
Teachers at Crossroads are working with wellness advocate Cindy Gershen to help students understand the importance of healthy lifestyles so they can pass on good habits to their children. Gershen founded the Wellness City Challenge, a nonprofit working to bring healthier foods to schools.
Teachers contacted Gershen, who owns the Sunrise Bistro in Walnut Creek, because they wanted a caterer for their health and wellness fair next month who would provide nutritious foods they have been teaching the girls about, said teacher Kathy Dadasovich. Gershen agreed on one condition: that she be allowed to come to the school in March for an "eat and learn" lesson to teach the girls about the foods she would provide at the wellness fair.”
