Family Nutrition & Cooking Classes
Get your FREE COOKBOOK!Nutrition is an essential component to a healthy lifestyle, but it's not easy to change eating habits overnight and many kids resist changes to their familiar diet. But kids are more likely to try new food if they play an active role in choosing and preparing them -- so make meal-time family time.
Parents and kids cooking together can be a rewarding and a delicious experience! That's why the Fit4Allkids program at Johns Hopkins All Children's Hospital offers family cooking classes several times a year. Classes are designed for children ages 8 and up and at least one parent/adult must participate. These classes are made possible by Kohl's Cares and are free to all families, but space is limited and pre-registration is a must.
Classes are designed to:
- Teach interesting facts about the foods we eat
- Teach the skills needed to create delicious, quick meals
- Provide the information necessary to make healthy food choices
Program locations include:
- St. Petersburg
- North Pinellas
To learn more, parents can email questions to achFit4Allkids@jhmi.edu .
