The best ways to get kids to try new foods is to make it fun and creative, or let them help you make it! Being the kitchen parent at co-op gives you an great opportunity to get kids to eat things they normally wouldn't and let your creativity shine! Here are some of our favorite snacks over the years for inspiration.
