Bring your favorite child to part 2 of our free Nutrition workshop series and enjoy a snack together.

Learn about health snack ideas and make some with your child.  One way to expanding your child’s palate and address picky eaters is to offer new foods in a new setting and have them make it themselves.

Making food together is also a great time to incorporate numeracy skills such as counting, sorting and concepts such as under and over.
