Cooking With Colour

This cooking class is geared for youngsters aged 4 to 9 with an adult.  We believe a colourful plate is a healthy plate! In this class, children and their parent will develop their cooking skills to prepare a recipe highlighting produce of a different colour.  Encouraging children to eat more fruit and vegetables (as well as other yummy ingredients in the recipes), learning nutrients found in various food as well as acquiring culinary skills at a young age will set them up for a healthy lifestyle.  Kids and their parent will taste the fun!

The class is 1 hour in length. One parent can register with up to two children.

COST: $40 for one parent and child ($10 for an additional child).  Price includes food and supplies.
