Edison Elementary School - Family Dinner Club
Thank you to the all families that participated in the first Family Dinner Club meeting at Edison Elementary School on Tuesday, January 20th, 2015. We enjoyed cooking together, tasting fruit and vegetables and having a wonderful family time. A special thank you to Mrs. Lori Bjelde from Edison School and Julie Andrews, dietitian from Festival Foods, for leading the session.
The dinner included:
- Appetizer - veggies with a yogurt dip
- Main dish - healthy pizza (whole grain pizza crust, low-fat cheese, veggies and turkey sausage crumbles)
- Dessert: mixed berry parfait
We used popular kid-friendly dishes and turned them into healthier versions.
The Family Dinner Club brings families together at school in the evenings to cook, learn, and have fun. Participants go through all the phases such as chopping, cooking, setting the table, and eating. Every member of the family, including the little ones, takes part. The main goal is to model the importance of having family time at the table together, without any distractions such as screens (TV, tablet, phone), and to teach them how to cook a healthy, simple and affordable dinner.
