The Fun Family Cuisine event is focused on getting children excited about cooking, choosing healthy foods, and trying new foods! Introducing children to healthy foods and eating habits at a young age will help them develop healthy eating patterns for life.
Cooking offers children a variety of learning experiences and provides a way to get them interested in trying healthy foods at which they might normally turn up their noses. Time spent together in the kitchen encourages interaction and communication between parents and children and creates a shared sense of accomplishment.
In addition to children trying healthier foods, families may also experience additional benefits, including:
- Fewer meals eaten outside of the home
- Healthier, low-calorie meals
- Parents spending quality time with their children
- Less screen time because children are engaged in a family activity
