All Children’s Hospital Targets Childhood Obesity with Cook eKitchen Online Cooking Videos

Thanks to a donation from Kohl's Cares®, All Children's Hospital has launched Cook eKitchenTM, an online cooking video library that shows how to cook hundreds of healthy family-favorite meals.

All Children's now features Cook eKitchenTM online cooking videos on the hospital's Fit4Allkids website, as part of their Fit4AllKids campaign.

The recipes are kid-friendly, but made healthier and more nutritious. Crispy Chicken Nuggets are baked, not fried. Creamy Mac & Cheese is made with skim milk and reduced-fat cheese. Instead of a sugary cereal in the morning, busy parents can make good-for-you Breakfast Bars or PB&J Muffins.

"Adding the cooking video library allows us to enhance our website and reach even more families with this healthy eating message. The videos are fun and the recipes are easy to follow," said Kellie Gilmore, the Fit4Allkids Coordinator at All Children's Hospital. "We are very excited for our families to take advantage of this great feature and explore our Fit4Allkids website."

All the recipes use affordable, simple ingredients busy moms and dads can find right in the supermarket. Cook eKitchenTM recipes are developed and approved by registered dietitians to meet the USDA Choose My Plate dietary guidelines.

All Children's Hospital created Fit4Allkids to help children manage their weight and make healthy food choices. Now, thanks to Cook eKitchenTM, families have an easy way to eat right, with healthy recipes right at their fingertips.
