Michelin Star chef teaches special cooking class for El Paso Children’s hospital patients

EL PASO, Texas -- Some children at El Paso Children's Hospital got a yummy treat Sunday. Michelin Star chef Carlos Gaytan paid a visit to the hospital to share some healthy recipes with the kids.

The Children's Hospital partnered with Southwest University Culinary Institute to help family members learn to cook and eat more nutritiously.

Mexico’s first and only Michelin Star chef, Carlos Gaytan, was the first celebrity chef to lend his expertise to the program.

The little chefs today started off with yogurt and topped it off with granola, decorated in the shape of a flower. They also made waffles topped with Nutella, bananas, and strawberries.

The kids got to work hands-on with chef Gayton who taught them to be creative with the ingredients that are staples in everyone's kitchen.

"The children loved it. It was wonderful to see them participate. They actually got to get right in there at the teaching kitchen and be able to cut up their vegetables and their fruit and be able to participate and make a great nutritious breakfast," Cindy Stout President and CEO of El Paso Children's hospital said.

The event Sunday morning was a part of the empowerment program at the hospital.

It focuses on families that are at high risk for diabetes and taught them nutritious meals that can be made together as a family.
