Family Nutrition

Fostering a Healthy Foundation:  Family Nutrition 101 

Boost kids' interest in nutrition through a hands-on workshop preparing healthy snacks that can also serve as hors d'oeuvres at your next holiday party. First, we will cover the basics regarding nutrition, finding the right proportion of our macronutrients, carbohydrates, proteins and fats and what that looks like for children and parents alike. How do we find a meal plan that works for each individual that is easy and accessible? 

There is no one-size-fits-all diet. In this workshop we will also discuss how to discover what foods work for your unique body type and how to navigate food choices that support you! Utilizing readily available ingredients, let's get our creative juices flowing. These no-bake recipes are crowd favorites and don't only satisfy little appetites but can also be packed on-the-go for the office or a long road trip.

Date

Sunday, November 3rd from 1:00pm - 3:00pm

Cost

$27/adult & one child OR $50/family of four

$5.00 discount when signing up for two sessions (next session is December 15th).

Fostering a Healthy Foundation: Family Nutrition 102 

Set the stage for a healthy holiday season and plan on taking these new mindful eating habits into the new year! Boost kids' interest in nutrition through a hands-on workshop preparing healthy salads that can also serve as side dishes at your holiday feast. Building on our November workshop, let’s explore food groups and the seasonality of fruits and vegetables. How can we incorporate more vegetables into our families’ diet and why eating according to the season is good practice? During the winter season, it is the best time to look to warming spices to jazz up your favorite holiday fare and keep your immune system in tip-top-shape. We’ll round out our festive workshop by decorating some healthy, whole wheat chai cut-out cookies to take home.
