Fairway Market Woodland Park Hosts First Kids’ Cooking Class

Fairway Market, always on the leading edge of the food world, is hosting the first Fairway “Foodie Friends Class” to teach kids about food shopping, eating well, and preparing a dish.

Parents can shop with ease, while their children (ages 4 -11) join the “Foodie Friends Class” with Children’s Culinary Instructor, Hannah Netter. This comprehensive class will teach kids how to navigate the store and shop, pack their own lunch, prepare fresh dishes, and understand healthy habits. The class will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 from 3 to 4 pm at the Woodland Park Fairway Market (1510 US 46 West).

Hannah Netter, Children’s Culinary Instructor at Fairway Woodland Park, has more than 11 years of experience working in childcare and currently manages and teaches children’s cooking classes as part of a NYC-based company. The Fairway “Foodie Friends Class” will inspire kids to be independent with their food choices and with small responsibilities like preparing their own simple meals. Each participant will take home a Fairway lunch box that they will have time to decorate during the class; a coupon for their guardians to come back and shop; the food they prepared during the class; a Fairway grocery pad and pen; recipes to add to or start their collection and a fun recap of what they accomplished for the day. Tickets are $5 per class and parents are welcome, but not required to attend, as each class will be supervised. For more information, call or inquire within the store or email info@fairwaymarket.com. Purchase tickets at the Woodland Park store or online at www.fairwaymarket.com/foodie-friends-class. Dates of future classes are TBD.
