Do you have picky eaters? Are you looking for ways to make mealtime easier, or for activities to keep kids entertained? This class with Cooking Matters will help you K*ll two birds with one stone by getting children involved in making snacks and meals, making it easier for them to try new foods and giving them tasks to help at mealtime.
In this lesson, we will prepare caregivers to work together with kids in their care to discuss safe, age-appropriate tasks for kids in the kitchen, practice preparing meals or snacks with child-friendly steps, and make healthy meals and snacks that everyone will enjoy.
Every Cooking Matters lesson is interactive and discussion based. Please come prepared to participate by speaking up or chatting in! We will also be preparing a recipe during class, which will be shared with you in the confirmation email. You are encouraged to join us by cooking with us from your own space!
