Our classes

Every class is designed to spark curiosity and

focus in the following areas

MINDFULNESS

Through the use of our five senses we learn to be mindful eaters, while listening to our hunger cues. 

BODY IMAGE

Peaches keep us feeling fuller much longer than gummy bears do. 

POSITIVE EATING

By only using positive words in the kitchen, we find ways to talk kindly about all foods, even if they aren't our favorites.  

SUMMER PEACH SALAD WITH BASIL & DAISIES

NUTRITION

Stone fruits like peaches help ward off obesity related diseases like diabetes. Plus, they are high in Vitamin C which helps protect our skin.

COOKING

Peaches lose their shine as they ripen, and the sweetest fruits of all have small white spots on the top half- a sign of a perfect peach!

FOOD CULTURE

In ancient times, Chinese people believed that the peach tree had greater vitality than any other tree because the blossoms appeared in the spring before the leaves had sprouted.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who purchases the food for the cooking classes?


We will send you a list of ingredients one week prior to the class. As an alternative, we can buy the ingredients online and have them delivered straight to your home. You can expect to budget an average of $5 per child per class, as long as your home is equipped with basic pantry items (olive oil, salt & pepper, butter, milk, eggs, spices and herbs).




What is the cancellation policy?


Canceling classes inconveniences your chef mates, so we need to try to be as diligent as we can in attending classes. However, we know that sometimes things come up, so we allow one cancellation per month, with 7 days notice required.




Can I get a discount?


Yes. If you introduce a friend you get a class for free!




Is there a minimum number of kids per class?


The minimum number of students per class for both cooking and yoga is three kids.




Who will clean up after the cooking class?


We will come to your home 30 minutes prior to the start of the class to prep for the session. We will stay afterwards to clean up your kitchen, leaving it sparkly clean and ready for you to enjoy.




What if my child has a food allergy?


All of our recipes are vegetarian, allergy aware and nut free. Most of our recipes can be altered to avoid other allergies like lactose or soy. We can also cook gluten free and vegan meals. Please specify what needs or restrictions you would like us to work with when filling out the contact form, and we will be happy to accommodate.




What tools or props do I need to have at my house?


Yoga classes: We ask that you provide one yoga mat per child. Cooking classes: We are experienced, versatile and feel comfortable in any kitchen. We can improvise for certain things, and will double check before if we need any specialty equipment or tools. We do ask that you supply one cutting board and one kid safe knife per child at every class. If you need to purchase these items, we recommend this knife set and these cutting boards, both available on amazon.




How long is a class?


A typical class will run between 60 and 90 minutes per session.
