Curious Chef + Veggiecation
Veggiecation and Curious Chef have teamed up to make cooking the easy option for families and children! As an evidence-based children’s nutrition education program, Veggiecation believes in the power of cooking to not only improve the health and nutrition status of children but to also change their attitudes about food.
Veggiecation’s Healthy Kids Cooking Classes introduce children to the wonderfully delicious and nutritious world of vegetables by incorporating unique and kid-friendly vegetable preparations into fun activities and exciting experiences. Children are empowered to take ownership of their plate when they are involved in the cooking process and provided with information that is relevant to their growing bodies and minds.
By offering a live, online instructor certification training, Veggiecation has opened its program to passionate individuals all over! Certified Veggiecator Educators learn all the tips and tricks for creating an engaging experience for children while also teaching them about the health benefits of a featured “Veggie of the Day.” Instructors receive a Portable Cooking Kit filled with Curious Chef products upon training so that tiny hands can make hugely healthy recipes, as well as, Veggiecation's educational materials including posters, recipe and "I Tried It" Stickers.
The Veggiecation Educator Training Workshop (VETW) covers so much more than just teaching the classes. Participants learn everything from food safety & allergy awareness to building a business & marketing your services. By opening its program to the public, Veggiecation hopes to spread health and wellness to communities across the country and beyond by empowering those with a passion for cooking and wellness!
