Toddler Tuesday-Stella Is A Really Good Cooker

Hey friends.

We have been having so so so much fun so far this Spring/Summer.  I haven’t taken the time to blog about it and I have a TON of pictures in my phone.  I thought I would share a fun little activity that Stella participated in last month.

I shop at Hy-Vee that is a few blocks from our house and noticed a sign for a kids cooking class with the dietitian.  I called Abbie to see if there was an age requirement and she encouraged us to participate.  It was only $5 so we signed up!

Stella was so excited when we got there.  There were several older kids already at the table and she ran right up to them and introduced herself and asked them their names.  Social butterfly.

Abbie had several recipes to make that didn’t include cooking at all.  She let the kids help in every aspect of the food prep.  I was surprised but she even let Stella help cut.

All of the recipes would make great snacks for kids.  They all had semi-healthy ingredients (much healthier than candy that is for sure!) and letting the kids make their own snacks makes them more inclined to eat them.

We plan on going to another class next week.

Here is a link to one of the recipes that is similar to what we made:

Have a happy day!
