Kendall School of Education adds childhood nutrition concentration

The Kendall College School of Education has added a childhood-nutrition concentration for early-childhood educators, available in fall 2010.

Kendall College is the only four-year college in Illinois and one of a select few nationwide to offer both a Bachelor of Arts in culinary arts and a Bachelor of Arts in early-childhood education, uniquely positioning the institution to merge these two programs into the childhood-nutrition concentration.

Courses will be offered online and on campus. They will include classroom lectures and practical, in-kitchen applications of nutritional theory, which online learners will engage in via a virtual kitchen experience. The concentration will explore the nutritional needs of children through adolescence, as well as application of nutritional theory with public-health initiatives. For more information, visit
