Before the foodie craze on Instagram, where the bigger the crazy shake the better, there was just good, old-fashioned real, fresh food. Nutrition pioneer, Stacey Antine, who wrote Appetite for Life: The Thumbs-Up, No-Yucks Guide to Getting Your Kid to be a Great Eater in an effort to shift family attitudes and habits around food, has continued her efforts with the nationally-recognized HealthBarn USA, which was also featured on the Rachel Ray Show and CNN.
At the Bergen County, NJ-based Barn, kids and families learn how to grow their own fruits and veggies, make the best choices at supermarkets and restaurants, learn how to prepare and cook their bounty, and how to add a heaping, tasty scoop of fun to everyday meal and snack.
Looking for a fresh birthday party idea? Consider a “Birthday Barn Bash” designed for kids ages 3 – 15, where kids get to prepare the meal, and eat it too! Themes include Garden-to-Table Pizza, Viva La Italia, Chop Chop Dumplings, and La Fiesta Time. Yum! Then all of the birthday parties finish off with a choice of yummy desserts like Fudgy Brownie Bites with Banana Ice Cream, Beet Velvet Cupcakes with Vanilla Icing or the Chipper Sandwich (yes, an ice cream sandwich!). Branded aprons and chef hats are also available if you really want to take your party to the next level - and have some really cute photos when all is said and done. What's even better is Healthbarn USA offers these delicious birthday parties year-round (Garden-to-Table Pizza is seasonal only), giving your child a unique experience that they will be talking about until their next birthday.
