It is never too early to learn to eat, and cook, right. With childhood obesity and diabetes at a record high in America, it is more important than ever for children to learn healthy food habits at an early age. This fun, interactive program teaches children how to eat healthy and prevent disease. Children will learn about healthy, delicious, easy-to-prepare foods at a one-hour cooking and nutrition class. This is a youth-centered class to help families learn new tastes and easy food preparation skills. The lessons learned at this class are ones they will carry into adulthood.
Each class will include a nutrition topic and activity followed by a cooking demonstration and a sampling of the food prepared. Classes are appropriate for children ages 7 to 13 years old, and parents and guardians are encouraged to attend. (Children under 10 should attend with a parent.)
