Events, features and things to do for families in New Hampshire
It’s not easy to cook and compile fast, tasty and nutritious meals every day, but parents must do it for 352 days a year making over 1,056 meals for their kids. To help moms and dads navigate through the 300,000 plus food products in super markets and get healthy meals on the table every day, the Food and Health Forum is launching a new series of cooking and wellness classes for families at the Blue Moon Evolution restaurant featuring owner, Kath Gallant, owner and nutritionist Tracey Miller. The Blue Moon is a farm-to-table restaurant located in Exeter.
“Much of the American diet is highly processed and loaded with sugar, fat and salt and it’s led us to a real health care crisis. It’s not a coincidence that our food has gotten cheaper, and our health care costs are at an all time high,” said Miller. “We know it’s a daunting task for parents to make three meals day after day, but there are simple, creative ways to do it that don’t break your wallet or your back.”
The focus of their fall series is to help moms and dads who don’t like to cook, don’t have time to cook and who are confused about what to eat. “We show parents how to cook simple, flavorful foods and help them understand the impact that food has on their children. We want to help parents be confident in the kitchen and not overwhelmed,” said Gallant.
The first class in the series is, “Thinking Outside the Box: Wholesome Breakfasts and Lunches for Kids on Sept. 24 from 7 -9 p.m.
This class gives parents new ideas and recipes for breakfast and lunch and creative healthier versions of the old standbys with colors, textures, and shapes that kids will love without a lot of fancy packaging and lots of chemicals. This class will include a light dinner, hands on instruction, nutrition fact sheets, recipes and more. It will cover:
The fall series also features the following classes:
Kath Gallant, owner of Blue Moon Evolution, Kathy Gallant and nutritionist and health coach, Tracey Miller, joined forces to convene doctors, policy makers, farmers, CEOs, citizens and other visionaries who are revolutionizing our food system from the ground up.
