Katie Shepard is a Registered Dietitian who created her program Food Explorers, as a way to introduce children to healthy eating with a hands-on approach. This five-week program will dive into the five food groups in MyPlate! Each week will focus on one food group, starting off with an interactive nutrition activity, followed up by a hands-on cooking activity, where children will make a healthy and simple supper, using ingredients from the food group of the day. Children's knowledge will be tested, recipes will require children to use their new skills, and they will work as a team to create delicious food. This program will be nut free, and children will come home with new recipes, new skills and new knowledge about the food that they eat.
