Bring the family together in a new, healthy way with creative kitchen fun for everybody.

Kids in the Kitchen

  • Turn your kitchen into an art studio by coming up with creative ways to make your favorite foods.

  • Add a new twist to healthy snacks to make them more appealing. For example, make cartoon faces or animals out of fruit and vegetables.

  • Become "kitchen scientists" with your kids by finding out how much sugar is in a can of soda, or by dissolving an eggshell, or even making your own low-fat ice cream!

  • Involve your kids in everyday cooking activities such as shredding lettuce, mixing ingredients together, adding spices, rolling dough, and choosing the vegetable for dinner.

  • Make a pizza together, a great way to demonstrate how healthier ingredients like lean meat, veggies and low-fat cheese can taste delicious.
