Larry Bain, Culinary Ambassador

At Children’s Discovery Museum, we are committed to providing wholesome, nutritious, and, most importantly, delicious food for all our visitors. Below are some seasonal recipes to try at home!

The secret to a healthy diet is simple – eat whole foods with lots of fruits and vegetables and watch your portions. At FoodShed we use fresh, local ingredients, simple recipes and a hefty dash of love to make your meals. Everything tastes better when you cook from scratch and kids love to eat food they've had a hand in preparing. To help you cook with your kids, we're providing recipes that your kids, and you, will love. You'll also find recipes from the cooking classes we conduct in partnership with Kaiser Permanente's Healthy Eating Active Living (HEAL) program. Our HEAL recipes (look for *) are super healthy and tasty. The menu at FoodShed changes seasonally and these recipes will too, so visit often for new fun dishes for you and your family to cook together.
