DAVIDSON – Convincing young children to eat their vegetables isn’t always easy. So Davidson Parks and Recreation is offering a cooking class to help kids ages 3-5 understand the importance of nutrition.

Children will sample their creations at the end of class and take some home to show their families.

Recipes will be included.

The class, called After School – Scrumptious Cooking Class for Kids, takes place 4-5:30 p.m. Tuesdays, Feb. 26-March 19. It costs $43 for Davidson residents or $48 for others. Register in advance.
