Kids in the Kitchen

Join Angela Tate, Community Nutrition Instructor with MSU Extension, to explore ways kids can help in the kitchen with age appropriate kitchen activities, how to get them involved so that they are more likely to eat the food prepared and more.

There will be several budget-friendly recipes/snack ideas, and opportunities for participants to engage with ideas that will use up ingredients you have, stretch your ingredients, and how to make simple swaps to turn a recipe framework into something your family will enjoy.


This program will take place on Zoom. To join, click here.

Starting May 3, you can pick up recipe cards, measuring cups and spoons at your local library branch, while supplies last (one per family). You can also access the resource packet here.
