Learning to love new, healthful foods should be among the new school year’s lessons, says local nutritional therapist Summer Waters.
“The younger we can introduce kids to these real foods, the better,” says Waters. “There’s no sense in waiting.”
Amid the back-to-school rush, however, many parents struggle to prepare wholesome, nutritious snacks and lunches. Easy but delicious recipes that parents can make with their children are the focus of Waters’ next cooking class at Medford’s Wise Women Care Associates. Part of the clinic’s “Nourishing Foods” series, the event will incorporate Waters’ in-depth discussion of nutrition facts and strategies, along with sampling.
“It’s gonna be real-food ingredients,” says Waters. “Not snack bars and diet things.”
