Culinary Exploration is a fun and unique class that gives toddlers the opportunity to practice independence and food exploration. Each session begins with bunnies taking a seat at their designated food preparation station — complete with an apron, chef’s hat, cutting board, and toddler safety cutlery. Then we dive into exploring and tasting the spotlight breakfast foods of the day. Bunnies get to practice cutting their own food, which in turn fosters confidence and encourages even the pickiest eaters to try new flavors. Throughout the class, the head chef will lead grownups in a discussion on topics such as introducing table manners, navigating picky eating, sharing food experiences, and more.
As a safety precaution, we ask that each family brings their own foods to use for the class. The schedule below outlines the theme for each week and the foods to bring. You are welcome to substitute foods based on your child’s food preferences or simply to what you have available already at home! If your child has a food allergy, we recommend avoid classes that list any foods they are sensitive to, since other child will have those items in class.
