Have you ever heard the phrase don’t play with your food? At RMHC the House is helping families come together and expand their culinary skills by letting them play with food while cooking healthy options with the House program called, Kids Can Cook.
Kids Can Cook happens once a month in one of our nine kitchens where a special food is prepared each time. With aprons in place, families prepare fun and healthy snacks together. Thanks to a generous grant from Northwestern Mutual, RMHC staff and guest chefs can help our families not only make a fun treat, but memories as well. This program also shows kids how to be creative in the kitchen and helps them be more adventurous with the food they eat.
From fresh high powered juicers to holy moly guacamole, families are encouraged to explore new recipes and satisfy taste buds as they explore together the value of good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle. Cooking is not just about the ingredients, or recipes, but about coming together to expand your imagination and creativity with the people you love.
