The first Kids Cook Monday cooking class was held on March 25 at ShopRite of Washington, NJ. Children ages 4 to 8 attended the class that was taught by retail dietitian, Carly Sopko, in the store’s culinary demo area.
“The class was full 10 days prior to the event,” Carly said. “It went great and I already have 13 people signed up for the next class in May.”
In two hours, the kids and their parents helped Carly prepare two recipes: Mashed Potato Hills and Greek Salad; ideal starter dishes for 4 to 8 year olds. Some children chopped, some made salad dressing from scratch, and everyone relished their first Kids Cook Monday recipes.
ShopRite is partnering with The Kids Cook Monday to inspire families with the message: Start your week off right: Make Monday family night!
