Sure, it was fun to be the fattest city in the fattest nation on Earth for while, but the novelty is wearing, um, thin. All kidding aside, we are facing an unprecedented epidemic of obesity and diabetes. It’s feared that the current crop of school age children will be the first American generation to have a shorter life expectancy than their parents — due solely to poor eating habits. The smart solution? Don’t wait until it’s too late for these kids! Get kids invested and schooled in healthy eating from the get-go.
Join Elizabeth Fiend in a series of cooking classes for little kids.
Saturday April 28th, 11:30am, FREE!
Whole Foods Market, 929 South St.
First up, Peter Rabbit (pear) Salad, followed by Flower Power Sandwiches made with Cherry Cream Cheese. Wash it all down with homemade Fizzy Juice, no sugar added. Hands on for the kids, but mom or dad can help.
