Creating healthy food and snacks for kids

As a mum myself, and with my kids wanting variety all the time, I find myself creating quick, easy and nutritious snacks and meals for them that they enjoy and actually eat! I have found various ways to get them to eat their veggies and educate them on nutrition. In this class, I share my ideas, tips and tricks for fussy eaters, sensory issues, cooking for children with any allergies or other health issues, choosing the right foods, what to avoid, etc. I love to get kids involved in the kitchen as well – so bring your children along for this fun class.

Who is this for? Parents and children.
