Description: Lisa Suriano, founder and creator of the Veggiecation Program (veggiecation.com), and Whole Foods Market in Manhattan’s Upper West Side will get kids excited to eat their vegetables with kids cooking class on Feb. 21.
Class will teach participants how to prepare a selection of kid-friendly, healthy veggie dishes. As practiced in participating classrooms throughout the country, kids will be invited to help prepare Veggiecation Program’s recipes, sample Veggiecation Program’s culinary creations, experience vegetables in their raw form and cast a vote on how they liked the recipes in the Veggiecation Ballot Boxes.
