    Healthy food is the first ingredient to a happy, engaged and active child. Using the MyPlate model our educators will teach the children the importance of nutrition, magic of science and magnificence of nature using real kitchen tools. Our goal is to endear even the pickiest of eaters to a smorgasbord of healthy foods with knowledge of where their food comes from and understanding of the super powers that come along with eating super foods. Come taste the science!
