Cooking with kids empowers children to prepare their own healthy snacks and make their own nutritional choices. It gives them a chance to see others enjoying healthy food, and provides time to discuss nutrition concepts and what makes some food or food prep techniques healthier than others.  Furthermore, cooking and eating is a wonderful way to explore different cultures and their flavorful cuisines and customs.
