Getting your kids to eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner as a concept that we should eat three square meals everyday to maintain a good diet is not often easy. Breakfast is probably the most difficult meal to convince kids to eat in the morning. Mornings are usually hectic and there is no time for a real breakfast. Summer is a great time to get kids to learn what makes a healthy breakfast and to get them into the kitchen to prepare a healthy breakfast.

The Publix Aprons Cooking for Kids Class is offering a 3-day summer camp experience on July 14, 15, and 16 to introduce the concept of "3 squares a day" to kids ages 8-12. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner menus will be prepared by children along with the Aprons staff. Staff chefs are professional chefs from all areas and enjoy presenting cooking classes for children. The summer camp cooking classes will being at 11:00 a.m. Class time will be a period of approximately 2-21/2 hours each day. Kitchen tools are kid-friendly and safety in the kitchen is emphasized.

The 3-day "3 squares" summer camp will be offered at Publix Supermarket at its 2875 University Parkway University Walkway location. You may call 941-358-7781 for registration information.
