Cooking brings the family together and allows kids to express themselves all while having fun!

The experience of creating your own meal helps boost self-confidence, lays the foundation for healthy eating

habits and provides rich sensory experiences! Cooking also provides tons of practical experience for kids such

as reading, following directions, and measuring. It also helps develop fine motor skills, hand eye coordination, and of course builds on some early concepts of science. 

"Cooking with kids is not just about ingredients, recipes and cooking. 

It's about harnessing imagination, empowerment and creativity!"

Guy Fieri
