Ingredients for Healthier Kids

This course covers seven main areas: protein, sugars, preservatives, colors and dyes, hormones and antibiotics, processed grains, and pesticides/herbicides. We’ll look at the health effects of each of these categories and how to fully eliminate harmful additives or make smart choices regarding the quantity and quality of ingredients. Dr. Julia Nordgren, MD, joins us to discuss how what we eat affects our bodies while Chef Ann explains how to select healthy ingredients during procurement and in the kitchen.
