It might be easier to get the kids to eat their veggies if they helped cook them!

Parents were cooking with their kids in a special workshop at the Calgary Farmers’ Market this weekend.

Sharon McCormick, with Poppy Innovations, puts on the workshops and said there’s a real need for kids to know how to make a nutritious meal or snack.

“About one in three Canadian children are considered obese or overweight and one in four adults the same. It’s astonishing to see those kinds of numbers in a country like Canada,” says McCormick.

Another workshop is planned for Saturday, March 22nd.
