New Yorkers trying to instill a love for healthy eating in their children should be sure to attend this Thursday's Harlem Seeds event. On August 26, the Harlem Food Festival and Fresh Food Summit will host another great event that promotes a love for healthy eating in children and teaches parents about nutritional nurturing.
Parents will learn how to:
- Cook hearty and varied weekly meals
- Prepare healthy meals with ease
- Incorporate healthy practices in your lifestyle and home
- Provide healthy snacks and meals for kids returning to school
There will be plenty of hands-on demonstrations, so this is a great way for kids to experience the art and enjoyment of cooking food while learning important nutritional information. It's usually hard to get kids excited about healthy eating, so an interactive event may be just the connection your children need to appreciate all of the hard work, science and fun that go into preparing a meal. The event also offers great recipe ideas and nutritional information for busy parents.
Be sure to check out the Harlem Seeds calendar for the rest of their upcoming events in August and September. Harlem Seeds is a child-focused nonprofit founded to fight childhood obesity and poor nutrition in Harlem. The group holds numerous events, such as Tastes of Harlem, garden parties in its downtown garden lot and educational lectures and seminars.
