It is no secret that many families struggle to keep their kids on track when it comes to nutrition. But there is a solution to this problem: sign your kids up for a cooking class aimed specifically at giving them the confidence to take ownership of their own meals. This is where Tiny Turnips Kitchen comes in. If you want your little ones to become master chefs with a knack for eating their vegetables, no need to look any further.
Getting to know founder Andrea Kapner is enough of a reason to want to book a class with Tiny Turnips. She is extremely personable and fun, with experience and credentials to boot.
“While attending graduate school for nutrition education at Teachers College, Columbia, I spent my summers volunteering on organic farms across the US. I spent those summers harvesting, planting, and tending livestock and honing in my culinary skills.” says Kapner.
She has applied her education in a barrage of ways, from working with pubic schools and non-profits to create curriculum pertaining to nutrition for children, to designing menus for chefs, major media outlets, professional athletes, and fitness specialists, she has done it all.
If you want your kids to try their hand at some delicious and healthy cooking and baking, it is never too early! Kids can begin classes as early as three years old, helping them to develop healthy habits and familiarize them with basic kitchen skills. What’s more, is that they will have an amazing time in the process, and won’t be able to wait until their next lesson.
“Tiny Turnips classes are for EVERYONE! We encourage all students to try everything, even the pickiest of eaters. We find that once the student gets their hands dirty (in the best way) and active in the kitchen, they are more likely to eat what they have made.” says Kapner.
