Why: A passion for food and cooking is a lifelong skill that Chef Paula’s father instilled in her from an early age. There are many benefits to this. For example, families love that their kids retain their interest in preparing their own food and bonding over food related activities. The experience helps even formerly picky eaters discover they enjoy eating new foods with healthy and nutritious ingredients! Cooking also enhances confidence, fosters curiosity, and develops good habits.
