The best way to encourage picky eaters to try new things is to involve them in the preparation of meals.

And what better way to do that than with cooking classes tailored to children!

WWC and Kidstir have partnered to create monthly cooking classes that train little chefs in

kitchen safety,cooking skills, nutrition, and gardening!

This is Chef April Stearns, our lovely culinary instructor! She has a passion for cooking, backed by a degree from the Culinary Institute of America. She also has extensive experience in restaurant and catering businesses.

April is a wonderful teacher, and will make sure that your child has fun throughout the entire class with hands-on activities and engaging lesson plans. Don’t be surprised if they come home with a new vocabulary of classical cooking terms!

Here are some of the pictures from our cooking class on saturday, April 18th:

Our only rule is that you can’t say anything is yucky!

Throughout the lesson, all of the food scraps went into these two bowls…
