About Food Explorers
Food Explorers is an interactive group cooking class (currently virtual) for kids and their families that seeks to help kids become more comfortable around a wider variety of healthy foods. This class is offered by a multidisciplinary team who specialize in feeding. The goals of this class are to:
- Expose your child to new or unfamiliar foods
- Increase their comfort level and confidence in exploring new foods
- Teach children how healthy foods help their bodies
- Support parents in learning strategies that they can use at home to help their children gain comfort with a wider variety of healthy foods
Patients can take this class if they receive a referral from their provider to the BMC Feeding Team. For more information, talk to your child’s primary care provider.
