Spring Workshops for Kids and Pre-Teens

playing-with-your-food1The Cedar Cottage Food Network is presenting several cooking workshops for children and pre-teens this spring at Trout Lake and Kensington Community Centres. Food intersects well with many other disciplines and these cooking workshops develop literacy, teamwork, problem-solving, and motor skills.

At Trout Lake (register online here under Education > Cooking and baking):

May 24 from 10am-12pm – Experimenting with Food (ages 5-9) | $15
After doing some fun science experiments, participants will apply the concepts learned to cooking.

June 7 from 10am-12:30pm – Food and Our Bodies (girls ages 10-14) | $18

Participants will learn to make healthy connections between body image and food after this combination of group discussion and cooking class. Lunch will be prepared and enjoyed together.

At Kensington (register online here):

April 26, May 3, May 10 from 10-11am – Little Cooks (ages 4-7) | $35 for 3 sessions

All food in the workshops is nut-free and vegetarian. If you have any questions, feel free to e-mail cedarcottagefoodnetwork[at]gmail[dot]com.
