OWOSSO — Memorial Healthcare and the Michigan State University Extension program invite area teens to participate in the Cooking Matters for Teens program.

The six-week class meets two hours each Monday. A nutrition professional and chef team up to provide interactive lessons to help teens build skills and confidence in making healthy meals and snacks.

Classes begin April 8 and will meet for six Mondays from 4 to 6 p.m at the Memorial Healthcare Community Wellness, Nutrition and Diabetes Center in the Woodard Building (North Entrance), 317 S. Elm St. Ste. 202. Graduates will receive a certificate of completion.

A waiver must be signed before attending. There is no cost, but pre-registration is required. To register or for questions, call Memorial Healthcare at: (989) 729-4700.

Each class focuses on key topics, such as hands-on food preparation that provides cooking, and food safety education; nutrition activities and discussion; learning to shop smart for foods you love; and adapting favorite recipes to make them healthier.
