You can teach your children to cook with pork and have fun doing it. Not only will the kids learn good cooking skills, but you also can introduce them to new recipes with the new Kid's Cooking School materials.

These materials from the National Pork Producers Council were developed to bring children ages 8 to 12 into the kitchen.

The packet, which is free to youth organizations, includes publicity and promotional ideas, sample cooking-school schedules, educational activities and reproducible handouts.
