If you’ve ever thought about having your children take a cooking class, I’m offering those classes to children of all ages. Research shown by the National Network for Child Care shows that children learn by touching, tasting, feeling, smelling, and listening. There is absolutely nothing better than sharing the experience of cooking with your children than right there next to you. There are lots of cooking programs out there for children, however it is imperative that you make sure that those classes also teach your children about eating healthy.

In Noel’s Kitchen for the Mini Chefs, I offer your children the most unforgettable program in which your little ones learn next to you, enjoy the experience of eating healthy and are able to use kids friendly kitchen tools which they will be able to keep. There is nothing better, than helping them learn techniques in the kitchen to select healthier meals while making it a fun experience.

I am very passionate about educating children and their families about family mealtime together and what a crucial part it plays in our children’s lives. Come join me for EXCITING kids cooking classes where your kids will not only learn good eating habits, but also whip up their own delicious masterpieces!  

I offer a whole lot more than what a typical school of cooking classes for kids can offer you and your little ones. Feel free to check my website and request more information on Cooking Classes for Children,  Adult Themed Cooking Classes, Specialty Desserts and Birthday Party Extravaganzas!

The Meal Planner’s Creed: Daily Cooking Inspiration and Feeding Young Children

My family’s enjoyment of food is my responsibility; therefore- I will increase their pleasure by preparing a variety of dishes attractive in color and form and pleasing in flavor and texture.

 In MOST homes it is not convenient or practical for the children to eat meals entirely different from those that are prepared for the grown-ups. From the time the baby begins to receive solid food, the objective should be to teach him to like and to eat everything his/her parents eat, and in just the same form. Actually a child’s meal should be tailored to fit him or her just as their clothes are. What it does mean, is that food prejudices should not be allowed to develop in the growing child, if he or she is to grow up healthy, well-nourished and happy.

One of the most important influences on a child’s attitude toward food, I believe, is his or her parents attitude. If the father dislikes vegtables and says so, the child is likely to copy his father’s dislike and refusal of vegtables. (Parents are role models, our children at this age want to be just like us). If the mother dislikes some particular food and never serves it at home, the child will not become aquainted with it and may never learn to like it.

Parents who conquer their own food dislikes, lest they influence the children, are benefiting not only the youngsters but themselves in the long run; since it is difficult to eat a well-balanced diet if one has a number of food predjudes.

Noel’s Kitchen offers Cooking Workshops  focusing on “Kids In The Kitchen”  for familes, children’s classrooms, groups, and organizations.  For a small fee of $15 per child your child will receive a personalized tote with kid friendly kitchen tools and recipes to take with them.

You know the pleasure you get from preparing and serving something that your family loves?  Children can experience the same satisfaction when they help prepare food for themselves, their friends, or the whole family.  It builds their confidence and self estem and you can get dinner done while spending quality time with them.  Just make it fun.  Kids will eat what THEY make! My daughter has always enjoyed being in the kitchen with me while I’m cooking.  Spending quality time with your children in the kitchen will be one of your child’s most treasured memories.

In fact, some professionals believe that cooking is as educational as it is exciting for children.  Helping to cook involves several valuable skills important to child development:

  • Planning a series of steps in process
  • Using mathematical skills to measure ingredients and time the cooking of foods
  • Reading and interpreting written instructions used in recipes
  • Expanding creative boundaries
  • Mastering teamwork when cooking with adults and other children

Noel’s Kitchen offers “Kids In The Kitchen” Cooking Workshops for familes, children’s classrooms, groups, and organizations.  For a small fee of $15 per child your child will receive a personalized tote with kid friendly kitchen tools and recipes to take with them.
