It’s well known that when it comes to eating, parents lead by example:  If you eat healthy food, your kids will too. But we also know that managing a family’s busy schedule while making good nutrition a priority is a challenge. We want to make it easier!

Healthy Habits Kitchen and Semi-Sweet welcome nutritionist Elizabeth M. Ward M.S., R.D. into the kitchen to help improve your entire family’s eating habits in 2010, without making the kitchen table a battle ground.  Liz utilizes her expertise as a mother and her wealth of knowledge as a dietitian to help cut through the health-hype to offer practical tips for feeding even the most challenging kids.  You’ll walk away from the evening armed with tools to make healthy eating a real “family affair”:  meal planning tips; suggestions for fostering healthy food choices for kids; and food swaps and additions savvy parents can make to squeeze more nutrition into every meal.

This workshop will be held at Healthy Habits Kitchen in Wellesley, the Boston area’s only source for pre-assembled meal kits featuring healthful, whole ingredients.  These meal kits provide all you need to easily prepare a healthy meal. On the night of the workshop, Healthy Habits Kitchen will offer a meal deal to workshop attendees:  $2 off any 2 meals, $5 off any 3 meals and $10 off any 6 meals.
