Healty Cooking Class for Kids!

Last night, I took the kids to a healthy cooking class at the hospital. It was fantastic! They taught the kids how to make healthy versions of soda and pizza, and they gave them a lot of useful information on how to make good food choices. It was nice to have the information we have been teaching them at home reinforced by the hospital dietitians - the kids took that very seriously!

The kids colored pictures of the food pyramid and fruits/veggies /
while we were waiting for class to start.

There were a ton of healthy toppings to choose from!

Harper with her pizza creation - whole wheat crust,
pesto sauce, Canadian bacon, tomato, and
  Parmesan cheese.

Grayson tasting his creation -
whole wheat crust, bbq sauce, black beans,
chicken, and cheddar cheese.

The kids LOVED their pizzas! This was a really fun and educational evening. Does your community have classes like this? I encourage you to look for them!
