The success of CAS Go!Kids comes from its comprehensive scope. Children learn not only what to eat, but how healthy foods build strong bodies. Building on this knowledge, the cooking demonstrations help make healthy food a fun-filled exploration into new flavors and textures with kid-tested winning recipes.
