TOP REVIEWS FROM CHILD NUTRITION AND COOKING
I really enjoyed this course, I learned so much about food and nutrition to implement in my house. One of the most useful courses I have taken, the videos make it very entertaining and educative.
This course is immensely informative, as well as fun! I loved the way Maya made things simple, with diagrams to accompany all of the the nutrition information. I hope she does more courses like these!
easy to follow and toy can complete the whole thing (minus if you were following along to the recipes) in less than a day the loss of a star is due to the fact that i thought it would take longer
This class was wonderful for coming up with healthy ways to feed my picky children! The professor was also easy to listen to and provided a great lesson plan. I would highly recommend this class
