Remember when you were a kid, walking into the smell of fresh bread baking in the oven? The wonderful aroma filled the entire house! It’s memories like this we want you to recreate for your littles. But, we want you to learn to use the more nutritious Whole Grain (WG) methods nutritionists feel are so very important in diets these days. 

Connie Nieman, MS, (Kansas Wheat Commission Spokesperson & Home Baking Assn. Representative), will demonstrate. She’ll talk about how exposing kids to Whole Grains at a young age sets the foundation for lifelong healthy eating habits. Learn how to “sneak” them into baked products. You’ll get a practical kid-friendly recipe booklet, wonderful cooking demos & free flour samples.

Plan TODAY to come & soak up this valuable info from this Family & Consumer Sciences educator. The possibility of what this training can achieve in your kitchen & professional life is endless.  (counts for 2 health dept & nutrition training credit hours).
