We’re on a mission to make food FUN

Because we believe the way to kids’ stomachs is through their hearts and minds.

We know when it comes to kids and food, it can be complicated

One day they love apples.  The next day they’re gross.

Their food pyramid consists primarily of chicken nuggets, macaroni and cheese, and squeezable yogurt.

And that delicious dinner you made?  Forget it.  They won’t touch anything but the rolls.

On top of all of that, society and diet culture feeds them mixed messages about what foods are good and what foods are bad.

You worry about their nutrition.  You bribe, coerce, and threaten consequences just to get them to take a bite of peas.  The mom-guilt is strong when you eventually cave and offer them another pack of fruit snacks just so they’ll eat something. 

Don’t worry, mama.  We’ve been there.

What if instead of expecting specific preferences and outcomes, we encouraged kids to explore different foods and flavors? What if instead of clean plates, we celebrated curious palates?

The Food Explorer approach

Pressure-free

Our pressure-free approach to food fosters a love of learning and discovery in kids. By exploring food at their own pace without pressure or guilt, kids can learn to listen to their bodies and form positive eating habits!

Child-led

Our activities put kids in the driver’s seat, allowing them to interact and learn through play. Not only is it a lot of fun, it helps them develop independence and confidence when it comes to food.

Hands-on

From painting with fennel fronds to building watermelon rind race tracks, kids will have a blast discovering all that food can do. Plus, they’ll fine-tune other important skills, like fine motor control and coordination.
