Lisa Jendza is the creator of Freedom Kitchen Kids, a program that teaches the joy of "creating" in the kitchen and the importance of taking care of oneself.
The most important survival skill for our kids to learn, has been put into a curriculum by a mom who has a passion for teaching. Developing in them a sense of courage, confidence, and creativity, even "picky-eaters" eat their creations.
The curriculum covers basic nutrition while teaching the kids how to cook. Far more than an "activity" - these lessons are packed with education.
Alternatives are demonstrated for all recipes, teaching the kids options. All lessons are GF, DF, Peanut-free, with alternatives taught for egg-free, nut-free, and grain-free. Options are important! Freedom comes from choice.
The philosophy that this program is built on is that with courage, confidence and creativity, kids will learn not only how to cook, but how to take care of themselves, make choices for their needs, and problem-solve.
It takes courage to get in the kitchen and try new things. With practice comes confidence. And creativity is the ability to "think outside the box" (quite, literally, in this case).
“Lisa! You are the best! You definitely have a calling. Thank you for all of your hard work! The kids are lucky to get the chance to learn from you and so am I. I signed them both up for next semester."
“Thank you! We just love your class, and how you teach it. The kids are so engaged and thrilled to come to class every week! They love cooking because of you!"
“Just wanted to say Thank you! Cameron is loving the recipes and has developed a sincere interest in eating healthier because of you:) I have 4 kids and don't always get the time to do things with them individually, and this has become our time alone in the kitchen! Keep up the great work and see you soon."
