It is much easier to start life with good nutrition habits than to change bad habits as adults. Thatís the premise of Kids in the Kitchen, the educational component of Kids Cafe. Kids in the Kitchen is an age-appropriate, four-week curriculum that focuses on food preparation, food safety skills, nutrition and the importance of making healthy food choices.

Program results show significant improvement in childrenís ability to understand and use measuring cups and spoons, name food groups, and recognize the importance of hand washing as the first step in meal preparation.

Harvesters also offers nutrition classes for adults.

Harvesters can teach your staff to teach Kids in the Kitchen classes.
