WITS Labs have helped to increase parent engagement. Students’ self-esteem is boosted when they can showcase their work to their parents.

WITS Chefs lead WITS Labs, seasonal culinary and nutrition education classes for students in WITS schools. In the Labs, students prepare the simple, affordable, and healthy recipes that they will then experience at lunch.

The sessions introduce students to the importance of healthy eating and seasonal ingredients, inspiring them to share their newly acquired knowledge with their families. Programs like these have been shown to positively influence children’s food preferences and behaviors, according to recent studies.
