If your child loves to eat and have fun, you want them enrolled in our Saturday cooking classes. More important than having fun, your child will begin to learn the difference between “real food” and “food like” products. We use all natural and healthy ingredients in every dish hence our slogan "We Don’t Change the Dish….We Change the Ingredients!" Our menus are designed to re-introduce your child to some of their favorite meals but with healthy alternatives.
Using our “secret ingredient method” we have coined the phrase “I Tried and I Liked It”. We found that when kids are involved in the preparation of their own meal, they will try…and like foods they would not have otherwise given a chance.
Some parents choose to wait for their kids in our comfortable, Wi-Fi ready chill out room. There, you can watch your little ones through our glass window. Wait until you see how proud they are to have you sample their delicious creations!
Here are some of our most popular themes!

Meghan’s 7th Birthday was amazing! The Chef did an awesome job with the kids as did the assistant chefs. They were super excited to make Fettucine Alfredo and then to eat their own cooking :-) We, adults and kids both, had a great time at the party and we are so glad we came to the Real Food Academy. The addition of Zumba was a great choice. The Zumba instructor, Wendy, was super high energy and she was just great with the kids! The Zumba helped us end our party on a very high note!!! and the kids and parents just had this great release of euphoric energy to end the party in a fantastic way! Honestly, it was the best party yet and all of our guests seemed to also enjoy it! W’ll be back for Summer Camp — with friends!

The children had the most wonderful cooking experience. Not only did the get to roll out their dough, use a pasta machine, make fruit parfaits, and then enjoy the fruits of their labor. The music was invigorating, Chef Arthur gave easy to understand instructions, and everything was extremely organized. The children along with their teachers had the most wonderful morning.

This is the best carrot cake ever. I just made this raw cake for my family and everybody loved it (even my 4 year old Sarah). So glad I found you, your classes and your recipes. Thank you so much.

Dear Ms. Maria. We wanted to write to thank you for the wonderful experience Louis has had in your cooking class. In addition to learning many things about food preparation, he has also learned a great deal about nutrition and table manners.
Perhaps most incredibly Louis has begun to eat foods that he would have never tried without being introduced to them through you. Before your class, he was a very picky eater and was never even willing to try any type of meat, fish or green vegetable.
Thanks to you, he is now eating and enjoying edamame, churasco, salmon and even sushi!
We look forward to Louis continuing in your class and to his baby sister Sabrina joining you when she is a little older.
Again, many thanks.
