Local Chef Shows Off Healthy Cooking

A local chef is doing his part to help fight obesity in the Las Vegas valley.

Chef Darnell Hess went to Bracken Elementary School Wednesday to help educate the kids about healthy eating. The demonstration was part of an effort by the nonprofit Create A Change Now to improve children's health.

Organizers say the best way to teach kids how to take responsibility for their health is to give them an understanding of where their food comes from.

"It gives them some more hands on information about the food and how to cook it," Julie Sanders, Volunteer Coordinator with Create a Change Now, said.

Some of the vegetables the chef used to make the dishes for the kids were from the garden at the school.
