Cooking with Kids
Our program Cooking with Kids brings parents and kids together and helps them to experience creating healthy food as a family. They will learn about the health connection of food and nutrition by making easy and good-for-you snacks. Through hands-on activities, demonstrations, cooking and education, children and families learn basic cooking skills and food preparation techniques during our many events!
We are lucky enough to have Liz Weiss, author and registered dietician, lead our event ‘Meal Makeovers for Busy Families’ on November 6. She will be sharing her secret pantry “switches” that every parent should know, and will turn any picky eater into a health nut.
Learn from chef Claudia Denelle at our event 'Thats Tasty: A Tale of Two Cakes' as she shows us simple substitutions for the yummy foods we love so you can still eat what you want and not feel guilty on December 12. She will trick your taste buds and have you try two versions of the same ice-box cake to see if you can tell the difference between the regular cake and the healthier cake.
Make your own pasta at ‘Kid’s Cooking Green Pasta Making 101’ on January 30 with the hands-on educational outreach program of the Lexington Farmer’s Market Kid’s Cooking Green. Learn the benefits of cooking with locally grown food.

Our Cooking with Kids program is generously sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets. Hannaford and The Children’s Museum hold the same core values when it comes to the health of the community, and teaching kids that eating healthy can be fun. Through their support we are able to share with you these fun and yummy programs.
"At Hannaford, we believe in building healthy communities and reaching out to children to help them to embrace healthy choices now so they will continue to make them in the future. We are happy to team up with The Children's Museum in Easton and to help them achieve their goals of bringing healthy eating to local families." -Molly Tarleton
