FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT)-While some students in Fort Wayne are off on exotic getaways this spring break, others are having a stay-cation.

They're slicing, dicing, and mixing things up in a cooking class sponsored by Parkview Health and Fort Wayne Community Schools.

"I got to meet some new people, got to make some salsa," said Devin Netting.

"I am not good at cooking, ask my mom," said Shanice Jordan.

When asked about her cooking skills, Jordan jokingly said she'd burn the whole kitchen down if she was left alone, but Thursday was a success.

Students learned how to make salsas like pico, fruit, corn, and of course, the dance. It was a part of an effort to teach them about health eating choices, teach them a skill, and get them up and moving.

"They loved it. We've actually done this twice today. This is our second session. We had about 11 the first time and I think 15 this time, and the kids are just really enjoying it," said Michelle Bojrab-Wray, a dietitian at Parkview Health.

"It's something to do, and it's really just fun. It's a free activity," Jordan said.

Students got a taste of Mexico, and the fruits of their labor before the class was over.
