bon appetit, it’s time to eat!

when a good friend approached me about signing up theo for a cooking class, i had no idea what to expect. with the colder months approaching and a bunch of theo’s buddies already signed up, we scheduled a trial to see what it was all about.

we were hooked in the first 5 minutes. deniz akiska, the instructor, guides the class through each step in her sweet and patient way, even adding a catchy mixing song to allow each kiddo time to take a turn.

the littlest ones work up an appetite, too.

theo is almost a year younger than the rest of the kids in the class, which i thought might be challenging, but he is really learning how to take turns – waiting and watching patiently.

ever curious, this little one…

after putting the broccoli in the oven to roast, and mixing up a dipping sauce, the kiddos take a coloring break.

each week we make something delicious and healthy. from roasted edamame to pesto pasta to pumpkin muffins, there hasn’t been one dish that theo hasn’t tried and (mostly) gobbled up.

at the end of every class, we wait until everyone has a dish in front of them and together we say, “bon appetit, it’s time to eat!”

too cute, right?

i’m so glad we were asked to join in. it’s easier now to find things for theo to help me with when we’re cooking at home, and i’m able to use a lot of what we’ve learned in class to keep him involved.

do you have any favorite classes to take with your kiddos?

this was the first toddler cooking class offered at bread & yoga. for more information on their cooking and nutrition classes, click here.

  1. Theo seemed to fit right in despite his young age. What a teriffic experience for all the kids. Loved the photo of the little gut looking into the oven!
