Be a Foodist: Fun and Healthy Cooking Classes for Kids

Submitted by on September 12, 2012 – 9:06 amNo Comment

 Mobile Healthy Culinary Classes and Kids Parties


At Be a Foodist classes and parties, kids embark on a culinary journey that focuses on delicious foods, kitchen skills, nutrition and an overall common sense approach to eating well. Kids get to prepare and eat fresh vegetables, whole grains beans herbs, spices and other wholesome ingredients that are healthy, natural, delicious and good for them.

Kids come in and “don the hat” of a Foodist- a person who loves to try, taste, smell, & eat good food. They dive into preparing a fresh and delicious recipe. Foodists are encouraged to feel textures, smell spices and taste ingredients as they prepare their food.

Research shows that kids are much more interested in learning when they have ownership. We know this is absolutely true because most kids in our classes want to try all the healthy and delicious foods that they make! That’s what Be a Foodist classes are all about.

6 Week Fall session begins soon at a Real Bookstore in Allen and Fairview Village. EARLY BIRD SPECIAL ends on Sept 14, 2012.

Register online at or call today for more information (972) 246-8577

Foodists in our classes will

  • Learn about nutritious foods in a FUN and POSITIVE peer environment
  • Work hands-on with fresh ingredients (organic when possible)
  • Make healthy recipes like salads, dips and smoothies using kid-friendly tools
  • Discover, explore, and taste interesting ingredients
  • Learn about making good choices, eating well-balanced meals, MyPlate etc.

What you won’t find in a Be a Foodist cooking class: ingredients like high fructose corn syrup, highly processed foods, artificial colors & dyes, fake juices, sodas, salty snacks , unnecessary preservatives, trans fats & other yucky ingredients. Who needs that stuff?!

Our kids are exposed to way too much junk food. We have too many big companies marketing processed, unnatural, and unhealthy foods (some of them aren’t even technically food!) to our kids. Be a Foodist is a step in the right direction to teach kids and expose them to healthy eating ideas, methods and experiences.
