How about. . .

makeSection[] := Block[{},
NotebookWrite[EvaluationNotebook[],
        Cell["This is an object", "Subsubsection"]];
NotebookWrite[EvaluationNotebook[],
Cell[BoxData[
RowBox[{RowBox[{RowBox[{"foo", "=", "bar"}], ";"}], " "}]],
"Input"]];
NotebookWrite[EvaluationNotebook[],
Cell[BoxData[
RowBox[{RowBox[{RowBox[{"foobar", "=", "barfoo"}], ";"}], " "}]],
"Input"]];
NotebookWrite[EvaluationNotebook[],
Cell[BoxData[
RowBox[{RowBox[{"test1", " ", "=", " ", "test2"}], ";"}]],
"Input"]];
];
