I signed my daughter up for Health & Vitality’s Kids’ Workshop in an effort to educate her on not only making healthier choices but actually just understanding how food and ingredients and labelling all works.
She did this on Saturday. She was not SO excited about going so I was delighted when she bounced through the door bursting with excitement and showering me with every detail of the class proudly regaling me with what she had learned and her understanding of where sugar is “hiding” in foods. She learned about foods that give us good energy, sugar in foods, how to calculate how much sugar is in a serving of any given food, and how food companies try to trick us by adding sugar to even savoury items. She loved the cooking they did and came home with samples for me to try “NOW NOW NOW!”
Children generally retain information when they are entertained and engaged. For my daughter, the “fun” bar is set pretty high so Liza Rowan, well done!
(and later). Chloe has been absolutely committed to healthier choices and had not even ASKED me for anything sugary since. Was at a playdate today where her friend was doing EVERYTHING possible to get her to eat junk and Chloe stood her ground. It’s been incredible…

The girls loved their morning at your session, they were so proud of what they made and have asked to see you again! It’s so great to reset them after the holidays

Micah had a great time opened his eyes to sugar and especially things like 100 Plus drinks, Ketchup, sprite etc so he checks sugar content and is aware. of course it won’t change him overnight but it’s there in his mind. He has also realized he can have corn and peppers on a pizza! It seems he is way more willing to try stuff outside the house than inside. He had a great time was beaming to tell his older Brother after too!
The Healthy Choices for Kids Workshop has changed my 10-year-old daughter’s view not only of food but of her understanding of a strong and healthy body. She really loved the workshop and is still referencing it daily, and as we exchanged it perfectly coincided with her UWC UOS on the human body :).
