Kids in the Kitchen with Keri - {Guest Post}

Hi everyone!  My name is Keri Rutherford, Owner of Kids in the Kitchen with Keri in New Braunfels, Texas. I am an Independent Certified Cooking Instructor with Healthy Hands Cooking; headquartered in Irmo, SC.

With childhood obesity at an all time high; and more children suffering from diseases such as diabetes...high blood pressure...high cholesterol and an alarming number of food allergies, it's time for parents to take action.

Kids in the Kitchen with Keri has a simple solution.  Parents and children need to be educated on making the right food choices for healthier children.  No amount of exercise will make up for eating fast food and basically junk food.

Healthy Hands Cooking; along with my company has a vision:
  • To provide wellness classes for children ages 2-13 across North America
  • To lay a foundation of good nutrition so that kids feel confident about the daily choices they make
  • To provide business ownership opportunities to caring adult instructors
Our Mission:  To empower and educate our youth with the critical skill of nutrition education along with healthy cooking skills so they can make informed decisions for a lifetime of wellness.  We want to reach these kids nationally through a network of trained and certified self-employed instructors who can help fight the obesity epidemic and related illnesses.

We have many classes from which parents can choose:  Just a Taste one & two hour classes...8 Hour Core Programs...Birthday Parties....Summer Camps...Advanced Classes and our new Lil' Sprouts Classes for ages 2-5.  This Saturday I have a class with 8 young ladies ages 9-13 & we will have a nutrition activity for 30 minutes, then they will be cooking Cranberry & Peppermint No-Bake Reindeer Bites along with Lasagna Roll-Ups.  (loaded with spinach!)

To reach our goal, we need an army of certified instructors across the US.  If you have a passion for cooking and want to make a real difference in the lives of children, we need you!
