Program Summary

The Kids Cooking Camp will start with the Healthy Hands 8-Hour Core Cooking Program. This is our signature program that will lay a foundation of nutrition and cooking skills for years to come. Every day we will also get in a little physical exercise and fun activities, like a walk (or 2) to Smiths for practice choosing healthy foods at the grocery store.

 

Class 1: Healthy Snacking

We will cover all kinds of foundational information such as kitchen preparedness, kitchen safety, proper food handling, hygiene, cross-contamination, measuring, and proper food storage. We will also make some quick and healthy snacks to try!

 

Class 2: Healthy Breakfasts

We’ll start by learning the importance of fueling your body for the day and how to choose foods that give us energy and brain power! Then we’ll dive right in and make some amazing breakfast dishes using fresh from the field produce. Your kids won’t believe how good mother nature can taste.

 

Class 3: Healthy Lunches

We’re going to kick-off the class with a nutrition segment, and then teach your child how to properly portion and balance their meals for the greatest nutritional impact on the body. From there, we’ll jump into some healthy ideas for lunches. As you know, homemade lunches can be boring, and school cafeteria lunches can be costly and unhealthy. We’ll create some fun and exciting lunches that are easy to make and packed with important nutrients for “kids on the grow”

 

Class 4: Healthy Substitutions of our Favorite Foods

Burgers, pizza, chicken fingers, mac and cheese…our kids have their favorites and they will learn how to substitute and rework some of their favorite recipes to create the healthiest versions while still tasting GREAT! We’ll also focus on healthy substitutions, food labels, and daily nutritional requirements.
