This introduction to the series will focus on kitchen safety & cleanliness. We’ll learn about "anytime food" vs. "sometimes food", comparing a healthy cookie made from really-good-for-you ingredients to a delectable - and traditional - chocolate chip cookie. We will then make some fun & super healthy veggie and fruit dips to enjoy.
