Mix It Up Cooking Classes
Mix It Up classes come to you! We will travel to your school, community center, scout meeting, or even your home to host a class. Access to a kitchen is nice, but not a necessity. We service the Southeastern Wisconsin area so give us a call today to schedule your class!
Mix It Up Cooking Classes are for kids in grades 1-8. The classes usually last an hour to an hour-and-a-half. The cost ranges between $20-$25 per child, per class depending on age of students, location and menu.
Mix It Up is a unique cooking class that makes healthy cooking and eating an adventure for all ages. Our mission is to educate and empower kids, parents and families to cook, eat and enjoy wholesome foods. The earlier kids start off down the right path, the easier it is to eat healthfully as adults.
In Mix It Up Cooking Classes, kids learn:
· To try new foods
· Kitchen/food safety
· How to follow a recipe
· Cooking and baking techniques
· Good nutrition
Hi! My name is Erica. And this is my daughter, Payton.
I've been a Corporate Wellness Dietitian for over 7 years. I love working with adults, but after having a daughter of my own, I knew how challenging it could be to get kids to eat, and actually LIKE, healthy foods. So I decided to start a business with my daughter teaching cooking classes to kids. We try a new food in each class, usually some sort of fruit or veggie. Most of the recipes we make are centered around healthier versions of foods kids are familiar with, and have a heavy emphasis on fruit and veggies.
Since we started Mix It Up, we've been featured on Fox 6 Wakeup and make monthly appearances on Fox 6's morning show, Real Milwaukee.
