Director's Message

Kathy Stewart, Founder of COOKSMART
CNP, BEd, MEd, BScH Nutrionist, Educator

COOKSMART started in the kitchen of Kathy Stewart, with her three small children learning how to cut veggies for their pizza toppings. The kids were excited to practice their new skills, especially when they could snack at the same time. As their confidence grew using a knife, they became curious for greater challenges and were soon cooking and baking inspired creations for the whole family. Seeing the independence that only a few simple cooking skills gave her own children, Kathy created a vision for COOKSMART. 

Kathy's extensive experience as a teaching professional, coupled with her training as a nutritionist has given her the knowledge, skills, and passion to make COOKSMART a reality.  

Our goal is to inspire better food choices and basic cooking for life-long healthy eating!


Stories & Testimonials

Testimonial - Chisholm Middle School

With all the different food choices available, it can be a little daunting to get started in the kitchen. Yet cooking is a lifelong skill that will serve students well in the future, not to mention it’s a delicious hobby!
Chisholm Middle School students learned through hands-on experience how to properly prepare a nutritious and colourful meal through the Cook Smart program.  Students began their morning workshop with a discussion about proper nutrition and foods which provide health nutrients. Then students learned how to properly wash, cut and prepare foods by following a recipe. The gym was alive with sounds of slicing, dicing, grating and creating a layered bean salad. The students’ patience and teamwork skills paid off as they were able to enjoy their creation at the end of the workshop. Staff and students all agreed that the food was delicious. Students also learned how to properly wash the utensils they used to make their food and how to clean up after themselves in the kitchen.  
Overall, the students and staff enjoyed the opportunity to discover their culinary creativity.
Thanks CookSmart!
