Reviewers Comments: The Learning Kitchen - adult curriculum includes lessons on meal planning and preparation, calcium and vitamin D, fruits, veggies and healthy protein, and whole grains. There is also a lesson that includes a field trip to a local grocery store. Lessons are based on MyPlate. For each lesson, there are handouts, activities, and background information. Participants are encouraged to sign up for a bi-monthly e-newsletter (provided) to reinforce lesson goals. This adult curriculum targets adults with children. With some modifications, the curriculum may also be appropriate for older adults with no children.

The instructor guide has clear language and a clean layout. It is recommended a host coordinator, a nutrition educator, and a chef lead the series. Lessons are designed to be about 2 to 2.5 hours long, including a nutrition and a cooking component. Some lessons include physical activity and food safety components as well.
