“Being very active, working two manual labor jobs and regularly exercising, means I need A LOT of calories to keep my energy up and perform at my best.

As childhood obesity continues to be a public health concern, we believe it’s more important than ever to get kids excited about healthy eating. We’ve found that kids are often eager to help out in the kitchen. Cooking with kids offers parents and teachers a great opportunity to teach about nutrition and healthy choices.
There are many ways kids can assist in the kitchen, from pouring pre-measured ingredients to washing produce. The key, however, is to get them to actually learn about the health and nutrition behind the food they’re working with.
