Cook With Me
- recipes for healthy families -
Families who attend GECDSB Parenting and Family Literacy Centres (PFLC) have created a cookbook of healthy snacks and light meals that children and their parents can make together.
The authors worked with experts from the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit and Greater Essex County District School Board to develop and describe their concoctions. The recipes use healthful ingredients and the instructions promote math and literacy skills, as well as important parent/child engagement.
“Cook With Me” will be officially launched on Tuesday, June 2nd at 10:00 a.m. at the West Gate Public School PFLC (1275 Campbell, Windsor).
PFLCs help prepare children for starting school and encourage families to be a part of their children's early learning. The 5 GECDSB sites have been offering their free programs and support for 8 years.
