Get your kids in the kitchen with Hy-Vee

If you’ve watched Top Chef Junior, you’ve probably thought about how to get your kids interested in cooking.

Luckily, there are great classes right in the Quad Cities that give your kids the chance to learn skills in the kitchen. Our friends at our local Hy-Vee stores have plenty of options for ways to kids comfortable making meals and finding their way around the kitchen.

Maybe this won’t lead to television fame, but it could be a great way to encourage your kids to make you breakfast one day. Plus, the classes are all focused on healthier recipes, which all parents will love.
