Families from Hamilton’s Canadian Martyrs School created homemade salsa, homemade tortillas and roasted veggie stacks (a particularly artistic creation) paired with a multitude of colourful dips!
This hands-on cooking class* taught kids and their families how much fun it is to create and eat your own beautiful, delicious and healthy foods.
From a show of hands every child in attendance tried a new vegetable—and most a new herb! Mission of teaching kids that cooking is fun accomplished!
At Tree House Kitchen, we help kids explore new tastes and flavours so they can create their own culinary masterpieces! Getting kids involved in the kitchen can ease the burden on parents and turn cooking into a team effort.
Our recipe systems allow kids to learn new skills with minimal parental supervision, and open up the door to independence as they learn to trust their senses and creative instincts.
Funds for this initiative were provided through the Parents Reaching Out Grant. If you would like more information, please contact your local regional office of the Ministry of Education. Together, we can teach more kids how to nourish themselves.
Thank you Canadian Martyrs Parent Council for your assistance during the class, for your commitment to healthy families and for sharing this collage!
