Kids Cooking with our Virtual Wellness Classes!

Many of our activities have gone virtual, while we can all agree it is not the same as in person, these virtual activities are successful and engaging for all ages! Our virtual cooking class participants are increasing but there is still room for more. Parents are loving the opportunity to get their kids involved with a healthy, educational activity! Our dietitians send parents the recipe for each lesson a week prior. Last weeks class was turkey taco lettuce wraps! While the kids do most of the cooking and food prep, parents learn healthy recipes they know their whole family will enjoy! We offer weekly kids cooking classes every Tuesday at 4:30PM.

These classes are free and open to all children ages 8-12! Contact for our monthly virtual wellness center calendars.
