PARENT-CHILD HEALTHY COOKING WORKSHOP ON 4TH JANUARY 2015 [REGISTRATIONS CLOSED]

Moms and dads, daughters and sons,
Cook your way to health and fun!
Know the best way to cook and eat,

Fruits and veggies, nuts and seeds!
  Explore the colours, flavours and tastes,
Not just for good health but also slim
waists!! 


When was the last time you or your kid gulped down those crispy fries? Do you remember the last time you eagerly looked at the clock to track those “30 minutes”, awaiting your pizza delivery? I do. I had a full value meal last month and a small chicken pizza with a big bottle of coke day before.
Do you remember how you felt after having your meal? What did you do after? Did you sleep? Or did you work? I went to bed almost immediately, cause I was so felt so full, bloated and drained of energy. So the next day, at moms insistence I had a huge bowl of salad before lunch, and yummy green leafy veggie with hot rotis. Do you know what I did after? I travelled to college; returned home after tiring (read boring) lectures, played a game of badminton and now I’m writing this post. I’m sure most people have a similar experience, but fail to notice the difference their meals have on their body.

I’ve seen so many mothers tell their kids to restrict eating junk. To all those dear loving moms: have you ever told them what to eat? And why to eat it? Children have amazing reasoning and grasping  powers. They ask intelligent questions. And when they don’t get satisfactory answers, they’re bound to overlook what you’ve said.  When you tell them what not to, you’ve also got to tell them why. In addition, you’ve also got to tell them what they should do and why.

We at Urban Leaves believe reaping what we sow and eating what we grow. Explore the wonders of healthy food preparation and eating with your child in our workshop.
If you think there’s no other way to spend time with your kid apart from eating at a restaurant or hitting the movies, here you go! Perk up your child's interest in health and food. Children are motivated to eat healthy when they are involved in the preparation of the food they eat. Have fun and bond with your child while preparing food that is not only healthy, but also very very tasty!

Thank us when your kid cooks you a lovely salad after you’ve had a tiring day at work :D
