Just for Teens

You let us know you wanted something more for the teens in your house and we heard you.

Our new After School program for Teens is longer and more in-depth than the one for "all ages", and was constructed specifically with teens in mind. 

Top 5 Reasons

To Get Teens Cooking In The Kitchen

It teaches them about healthy eating
Explaining to your teen why they can’t eat fast-food every night gets tiring by the time they turn 12 years old. A great way to demonstrate the advantages of home-cooked meals over fast food is by regularly shopping for groceries and cooking with your teen. This teaches teens what goes into a healthy meal (ie. Real Food) and what isn’t healthy (ie. Processed food that includes preservatives, flavors, added extra sugar etc.).

Eating a “Real Food” diet is key to maintaining not only your physical health but also your mental health. This is especially important for teens, whose minds and bodies are still developing.
They'll learn to fend for themselves
There will come a time when your child needs to feed themselves. When this happens, it’ll be cheaper, healthier, easier and safer if they know how to cook at home.
It gives you quality time together
Cooking together is a great way to hang out with your teen and chat with them about their day. The time together will help you feel socially connected. Cooking together with your teen can provide a great opportunity to check in with what’s going on and find out how they feel.

You’ll likely find that chopping onions and peeling potatoes makes you feel more comfortable to talk about the big stuff.
It boosts their self-confidence
When a teen can shop for, prep, cook and serve a meal (or even a snack) all on their own, it gives them a tremendous sense of accomplishment and pride. It might not seem like a big deal, but these small things help teens to believe in themselves. A teen who knows they can look after themselves will be ready to take on life’s challenges.
It keeps recipes in the family
Teaching your teen how to cook is a great way to pass on those special family recipes. It provides an opportunity to talk about history and culture, and gives your teen a chance to learn more about who they are and where they came from.
