This year, competitors are challenged to create a unique and tasty breakfast item in a one-hour timeframe. Each child works with a parent or adult friend as a teammate. Children ages 4-7 will compete from 1:00 – 2:00 pm, and children ages 8-12 will be cooking from 3:30 – 4:30 pm. Pre-registration is required because space is limited and this program always sells out.
At each session, teams are provided with a variety of breakfast ingredients and some surprise options, as well as cooking utensils and equipment. Each team will create their breakfast item and share it with a panel of judges for tasting and feedback. All the chefs are winners in this fun-spirited competition.
“This program has been a big hit since we launched it,” said Jane Bard, President and Education Director for the Children’s Museum. “Hannaford has been an excellent partner for our efforts to get kids involved in the kitchen and choosing healthier alternatives for meals and snacks. We even put on a local farmer’s market inside the museum at the peak of summer growing season to entice kids with colorful fresh produce. We are pleased with how well families have responded to our FoodWorks programs and are continuing to develop new opportunities like this with Hannaford.”
The cost is $10 per adult/child pair for museum members and $20 per adult/child pair for non-members (includes museum admission). Families can register at the Children’s Museum or by calling during weekday business hours (9 am – 5 pm).
