Chef and Child Day at Chatham County schools

CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) - Students at West Chatham Elementary School celebrated Chef and Child Day with a nutritious and delicious lunch.

Local chefs talked at school cafeterias all over the Savannah-Chatham County Public School System Thursday.

The chefs educated school nutrition staff on healthy cooking techniques and encourage healthy eating amongst students.

"The whole premises is when they go to the grocery store they are going to try to lean towards something that they've never had and maybe their parents have never had. So we are trying to develop that culture at a young age," said Chef Jeffery Quasha, Morrison Healthcare.

The meal prepared featured nutritious, local, and organic foods meeting the Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act Guidelines.
