While cooking mushrooms and leafy greens on a hot stovetop, Wu Kejian explains how to make a nutritious meal with less oil and salt for 50 students attending a nutritious catering class in the school kitchen.
When the mushrooms are tender, he turns off the flame, serves the steaming dish and invites students to taste it.
Wu is a cook at the Experimental School Affiliated to Niulanshan First Secondary School in Beijing’s Shunyi District. He and four other school cooks have been trained in nutrition to teach students how to make two nutritious dishes through the biweekly class.
The class stems from the implementation of the “Nutrition School” project in Shunyi District.
