Nibble & Gobble - Building happy memories of fruits and vegetables

At this hands-on class, kids are encouraged to touch, smell, feel, explore, taste and play with food. They make simple and colorful dishes and through color, interesting plating and fun food-related activities they learn about making smart food choices. At the end of every session they sit down together and enjoy their creations.

Research shows that if kids feel empowered around food, they are more likely to eat it. Repeated positive exposure away from mealtimes leads to fewer dinner-table battles, less waste and more enjoyable dining experiences for the whole family. Bonus - eager little helpers in the kitchen!  

So lets keep their rumbling little bellies full of what nature intended. 

We will be making nut-free vegetarian dishes with fresh, seasonal & as far as possible, organic ingredients; easy enough for kids to recreate at home.
