Northern Illinois Food Bank strives to be a resource for adult, child and family nutrition. We provide educational resources, recipes, tips and activities to help individuals and families make positive nutrition choices.
Northern Illinois Food Bank is excited to present our Nutrition Education curriculum. Developed for each food group in the USDA My Plate model, these lessons will encourage children ages 5-12 to eat healthy by taking an active role in the preparation of meals.
Watch videos of recent cooking demonstrations by Executive Chef Jen Lamplough, food bank director of nutrition programs, and download the recipes and other resources. We have also included a list of helpful websites for information on eating and cooking healthy.
