Date: August 8, 2015 Time: Noon Speaker: Ann Butler Topic: Eating Healthy in a Hurry Organization: Genworth, Bring Your Chlid to Work Day Location: Genworth headquarters, Richmond VA
Chef Ann Butler has five children, and knows that it’s not easy to prepare real food in between swim meets and dance class and homework and PTA meetings — all after you put in a full day of work.
“But it can be done,” she insists, and in this speech she offers a cooking demonstration to prove her point.
Students attending Bring Your Chlid to Work Day are invited up on stage to help prepare a quick and easy meal that’s heart-healthy and made from wholesome ingredients. Parents are in the audience cheering them on. Then everyone eats — and takes home the recipes of the dishes the kids prepared.
“Even if kids don’t take home the top prize, this is definitely a case where everyone wins because they are learning to cook and eat real food,” says Butler.
About Ann Butler
A former high school Culinary Arts teacher, Ann Butler was frustrated that her students were consuming Red Bull and Doritos for breakfast, but found studies that show, teaching younger kids how to prepare healthy foods would stick for a life time of well being – so she started Edible Education.
Ann is one of Michelle Obama’s Chefs Move to Schools partners, and was 1 of 20 invited to the first Chefs Move training seminar. She is Jamie Oliver’s appointed Richmond Ambassador for the Food Revolution Day events having their joint video receive 1.3 million twitter hits; she was a National Business Women’s Owners “Rising
Star Entrepreneurs” of 2014 and a recognized USDA Community Partner.
Four years and 20,000 students later, Ann and the 16 chefs of Edible Education want you to experience the ease and fun of food preparation so your students can enjoy the success of preparing simple foods and getting excited about real food.
