Children’s Cooking, Health and Nutrition Programs – Click here for brochure

Cooking, nutrition and healthy living have always been an important part of the Children’s Eco Programs. Surrounded by an organic garden and plenty of nature trails the Children’s Teaching Kitchen is the perfect spot to learn about healthy living. Programs in our Kitchen are curriculum linked and help your students review healthy eating habits, nutrition guidelines, math, food security, cooking skills and kitchen health and safety.

How can you pass up on a program called A Bowl Full of Fractions? Just imagine how much faster students would learn their fractions if they had the chance to bake some tasty, healthy treats! This is just one way cooking in the Children’s Teaching Kitchen links to the Ontario Curriculum. Our Kitchen programs are full of hands-on activities that keep students interested and learning. We use seasonal, local, organic ingredients in our recipes while teaching students why these qualities are so important in our food.

Many of the activities include:

  • Harvesting
  • Estimating & measuring the volume of ingredients
  • Food Mapping
  • Safe kitchen practices (including knife handling for older grades)
  • Vegetable & fruit identification
  • Measuring using fractions and the Metric System
  • Sensory Activities

Make sure you book early to ensure you get the date you need. Once you fill out and email us your Booking Form for school and group programs you will receive a confirmation form and a Teacher Information Package with directions and activities to get you prepared for your visit. Please email your form to
