Spark is partnering with NeuroTrition to bring a 2-in-1 cooking workshop for parents and kids: Building Happy, Healthy Brains! This event will nourish you and your child's brains and bellies!
At this workshop, you (the parents) can expect to get schooled in the latest nutritional neuroscience on how to support your child’s brain and mental health through food. While you are in the workshop, your child will be busy in the kitchen (with lots of supervision!) learning to make recipes based on this science. Then - the best part - you and your child will come back together to eat what they have made! It’s going be some pretty epic edible science for your entire family.
FOR PARENTS // THE NEUROSCIENCE + NUTRITION
Have you heard that food has an impact on how you think, feel, and perform? Well, the same goes for your little ones’ noggins, too. In fact, brain-nutrition may be even MORE important in early life, given that important neural connections, which we will rely on for the rest of our lives, are built during childhood!
At this science-fuelled talk, you will learn what the science is saying about the role of nutrition in children’s brain and mental health, the TOP 5 nutrients that your child’s growing brain ABSOLUTELY needs, and the whole food sources of these nutrients (as well as smart tips if you are going to use supplements with your children).
FOR KIDS // THE FOOD
While you are busy getting schooled in some brainfood science, your child will take part in a brain food cooking class! They will learn to make THREE easy, super fun recipes based on the nutrients that you are learning about in the workshop. This is going to be the most fun (and tastiest!) science class your child has ever taken, we promise!
THE EXPERT HOSTS
Parents, you will be attending the workshop on the brain science and nutrition with Orsha Magyar, NeuroTrition’s Founder & CEO.
And your littles will be taking part in the cooking class with NeuroTrition’s Paediatric Practitioner (and mom of 6!) Katie van Veldhuizen and Chef Alison of Spark.
NEUROSCIENCE + NUTRITION + FOOD. TOGETHER!
You’ll leave with a clear understanding of how innovative neuroscience and evidence-based holistic nutrition will help you feed your little one some REAL FOOD for thought. Your child will learn how to make three simple, kid-tested-and-approved dishes. And you’ll come back together so the kids can serve you what they’ve created and you can enjoy the brainy items together!
*ALL MATERIALS FOR THE COOKING CLASS WILL BE PROVIDED FOR YOUR CHILD, AND THE RECIPES YOUR CHILD MAKES WILL BE GIVEN TO YOU
