The kindergarteners are such a delight to have in the kitchen! For our first class together, we discussed why it's important to eat a range of colorful fruits and vegetables because each color represents different phytonutrients that help keep our bodies healthy. We made a rainbow fruit salad with strawberries, Gold Nugget mandarins, bananas, kiwis, blueberries, and purple yam (technically a root vegetable, but so beautiful to behold we had to throw it in there).
Tools like the crinkle cutters and nylon knives helped our young chefs gain confidence working with all the ingredients. We really appreciated their incredibly attentive listening and willingness to try new things.
