Cooking Classes in Schools
A commentary published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggests that schools offer classes in cooking instruction, grocery shopping, food safety, and nutrition information. The hope is that a return to the home economics classes of the past will have a positive effect in reducing obesity and Type II diabetes among school children.
