About the course
If dinner time with the little one feels like a never ending battle, it might be time to try a different approach...
Cooking With Kids is a 25 part course that breaks down the secrets to getting kids to eat healthy foods in fun and exciting ways.
Discover healthy recipes that kids love, and parents approve. No more fattening frozen foods or quick microwave meals. Each recipe is designed to be fun, fast, and hassle free. The meals you’ll learn to prepare in this course are proven to build healthy habits, and lasting relationships with your loved one.
You’ll learn the simple psychology behind why kids love certain foods, and how to offer healthier alternatives to them. Discover tricks like cubing meats and juicing those veggies they avoid.
This course will transform the way your children look at meal time, and will actually get them excited to start eating the foods you know they need. If you know your child could be eating healthier, but wasn’t sure how to actually make it happen, then this course is for you.
The food we eat is the fuel for our bodies. What we feed our children impacts their growth, behavior, and their future. Early healthy eating habits have been proven to help prevent childhood obesity, mood swings, and lay the foundation for a happy and healthy life.
Engaging your child with creative meals is a great way to spend less time in front of a screen, and more time with what really matters - quality time together.
