Veg Kids

We all know that kids need to eat right and get plenty of exercise for optimal health. But what is "eating right" all about? And we really want to create healthy and delicious meals for our families. But how is that possible with limited time and a limited budget? In the following classes, you'll learn how to create nutrient-rich meals, sweets, and snacks using a variety of veggies, whole grains, beans, fruits, seeds and nuts - all rich in complex carbohydrates, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. These classes are intended for adults from veg beginners to long-time vegans!

The next series of classes will be in Spring 2015. Please email wendy@nwveg.org to receive info on upcoming classes.

Past Classes:

Sneaky Greens & Beans

Learn to make delicious and creative dishes with a variety of greens and beans to make sure your kids are getting plenty of the good stuff!

Sweet Treats

Create irresistible sweet treats packed with nutritious ingredients that you and your kids can devour completely guilt-free. All the desserts will be fruit sweetened, oil free, and loaded with fruit, gluten-free whole grains, and nuts.

Pack Your Snacks

Learn to prepare delicious and nutritious whole-food snacks that will energize your kids between meals. These snacks are oil-free and full of nutrient-rich whole grains, fruits, nuts and beans, too!
