Teen Cuisine

Teen Cuisine teaches teens to cook and choose healthier foods  

Teen Cuisine is an evidence-based curricula FSNE uses to teach and encourage healthy eating behaviors and food preferences.  This 6-lesson curriculum helps middle and high school-aged youth become self-sufficient in the kitchen while teaching them healthy habits that will last a lifetime.

Teaching teens to cook and choose healthier foods empowers them to make behavior changes that may persist into adulthood. Teens can have a positive influence on their families and friends to encourage shopping for and preparing healthy foods.

Teen Cuisine is part of the Healthy Changes for Out of School Youth initiative.
