Looking for Resources for Young Bakers?

Here are great coloring book pages to help make baking fun for the kids in your life! 

HBA loves meeting with Family & Consumer Sciences professionals and the youth leaders from their communities and schools. Recent FCCLA “baking buzz” included “how to meet” recently enacted Smart Snack guidelines for foods sold during school hours. What a great opportunity to further showcase and gain support for the 27,000 FCS teachers and 3.5 million FCS student in U.S. classrooms.  It’s time Mrs. Obama and more knew!
Smart Snacks, a part of 2010 Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, calls for collaboration--parents, teachers, school food service staff, administrators and community leaders united to reduce child hood obesity risk and frequency. Family and Consumer Sciences offers “key prevention intervention.”    Is your school considering “no food fund raisers or bake sales?”  That kills awesome educational opportunities and collaboration. No challenge could more perfectly apply to STEM. FCS teachers and students can
  1. Research breakfast and smart snack recipes.  Add ESHA II food processor software to analyze recipes or the Alliance Product Calculator (see text box) to evaluate existing Nutrition Facts.
  2. Use scales to calculate ingredient and net weights to provide portion control.
  3. Apply test kitchen “substitution science” to adjust and meet whole grain, sodium, fat, sugar, and calorie guides. Get started with Kitchen Science: Baking for Special Needs lesson plan at
  4. Conduct consumer sensory tests on new baked products in school.
  5. Use a unique shape to sell…pretzels, turtles, bread twists
  6. Bake winning products, cost recipe, set price and market “locally” made goods.
  7. Build school and community awareness of FCS and $$$ for its program.
