On April 9, the cooking demonstration focused on kid-friendly breakfast ideas that children can help make, and the educational talk will be the dreaded topic so many parents struggle with: what to do if your child is a picky eater!

  • Supervised kids' activities for children are provided
  • A free gift is available for all participants after every class
  • Anyone attending three classes can receive a $50 grocery store gift card
