[March 15, 2013]  SPRINGFIELD -- A hands-on cooking class for families with children 8 years old and older will be offered on April 11 at Lincoln Land Community College.

The class, "Just Cook: Quick Healthful Meals for Families," is sponsored by Memorial Health System and the community college.

The instructors are Dr. Virginia Dolan, pediatrician with Memorial's Koke Mill Medical Associates; Charlyn Fargo, registered dietitian and adjunct instructor at Lincoln Land; and Kim Bourne, registered dietitian at Memorial Medical Center.

"We want to give parents and children a hands-on opportunity to learn how to work in the kitchen together to create healthy and easy-to-make recipes at home," Dolan said. "While this class is a fun activity to do with your child, it's also a great way to encourage them to make healthy nutritional choices."
