In April, the Veggiecation Program is getting kids in the kitchen to help prepare Raw Asparagus Pesto and the Speckled Salad.
It’s time to get your kids hands dirty … in the kitchen. Join us for our Kids Culinary Class where little chefs will be invited to help prepare Veggiecation Program recipes and sample their healthy treats. Parents will receive a copy of Veggiecation recipes created that day. Kids will leave with coloring pages, stickers and a new love for veggies.
Please register in advance at Customer Service or email Ridgewood.RSVP@wholefoods.com . Age group for this program incorporates kids from Kindergarten to 6th grade.
