Seedlings, Ages 3-5

About Seedlings

This nurturing hands-on experience is designed to introduce children at a young age to try a variety of natural foods and to build a solid foundation for their overall wellness.

The upcoming spring classes will be held outdoor utilizing the spacious patio as our kitchen (with restaurant-style heaters for cooler temperatures) and the organic garden for spring planting and composting fun.  We will only be indoors due to incremental weather with plenty of space to distance and have fun.  Registration is available, please contact us directly to join.  Please inquire about our COVID-19 policies and procedures and/or schedule a private tour of the facility.

The 10-week program is offered weekday mornings, early afternoons and Saturday mornings during the spring, fall and winter seasons.  The summer program follows a different schedule. Each season brings a new adventure into the discovery of growing, cooking and eating fresh foods from nature. Parents receive our weekly deliciously nutritious recipes to support family activities at home.


“My 4 year old son is getting so much out of HealthBarn’s Seedlings class. He started last Fall and continues to be excited about the class, and especially loves getting to plant food in the garden. Not only is he now willingly trying lots of new foods, especially vegetables he thought he didn’t like before, he’s now asking where the food he’s eating comes from and how it grows… As a Mom and a Registered Dietitian I couldn’t be happier that he’s having so much fun learning about food and nutrition!”

– A Seedling mom

Our youngest expert taste testers, ages 3-5 have the opportunity to experience first-hand where their food comes from and why these foods are important for their bodies.

The class is appropriate for children who love their vegetables to the pickiest of eaters — our proven approach is effective in enhancing or changing habits for the child’s long-term health.
