The Cooking with Kids Initiative is a project of the Brainerd Lakes Area Early Childhood Coalition that began in early 2009. Coalition members have been planning and developing a cooking with kids experience that will target 3-5 year olds and their parents and/or caregivers. Still in its developmental stages, a few pilot sessions have been offered in the community.
Initial goals of this program include:
- Provide a positive food experience for children
- Increase the capacity of families to build healthy relationships with one another, targeting families of young children (ages 3-5) and
- Offer the opportunity for children to enhance the development of language, communicate needs and interact socially with others.
