Healthy Hands Cooking
Kids eat the darndest things, especially when left to their own devices. That's why mother and nutritional consultant Jan Walker Pinnington founded Healthy Hands Cooking to teach others' kids—as well as her own—the ability to make nutritious food choices. In cooking classes and summer camps, certified instructors teach kids aged 9–13 how to construct balanced meals and snacks from wholesome ingredients rather than succumbing to their predilection for peanut butter and jelly sandwiched between two pizza slices. Kids also learn about general nutrition, as well as how to create healthier versions of their favorite foods.
