These are foods that are actually lots of FUN to prepare and to eat! Our primarily raw vegan and living foods recipes will have a different, fun, kid-friendly theme each week. Kids will learn healthy ways to make the dishes and drinks, taste them all, and bring the recipes home to share with others! (Upon enrollment, parents or caretakers are advised to let us know if the children have food allergies or intolerances so we can make substitutions or other arrangements if possible.)
