National Every Kid Can Cook Day

Friday, November 2, 2018

Cook with us as we partner with parents, schools and organizations across the world to cook a fun recipe free of the top 8 common food allergies. Requires no heat or electricity. Easy and delicious! Recipe is designed to engage and teach kids as young as 3 years old up to parents as young as 109!

Why We’re Cooking
Nationwide schools are transitioning away from unhealthy consumption of treats, such as: cakes and cookies to celebrate a holiday/event and this event is an introduction of dialogue to inspire other organizations and schools to utilize healthy alternatives that are inclusive of food allergy concerns and logistical barriers due to a lack of resources (heat, electricity, etc.).
