Exploring food encourages children to learn through sensory experiences, hands-on activities and working together to create delicious results.
Food Explorers provides children with the knowledge to make healthy choices for themselves. By combining nutrition education with cooking and hands-on food exploration, you'll have a Food Explorer in no time!
I am Katie Shepherd, a Registered Dietitian and graduate of UCONN's Coordinated Program in Dietetics.
My passion for working with children and promoting healthy eating has directed my career choices. As a WIC Nutritionist and Retail Dietitian I was able to counsel families, and participate in community outreach projects.
Food Explorers was created as a result of my enthusiasm for working with children, and teaching them the joys of healthy eating and nutrition.
