I heard about Amara’s cooking class being linked to her Fiercely Intuitive Mamas program. I hope to expose my children to new healthy food options, and to allow them to expand their healthy food choices – and I received all that from the class.
I really enjoyed that children were allowed to be independent in their food choices, empowering them to make their own choices and be amazed from what new foods they liked. My kids thought that the class was fun, they felt good about themselves and excited to try incorporating their new food choices into daily meals/routines. They were also excited to help mommy cook.
Amara is calm, present, informative and knowledgeable. She guided the children, did not talk at them but engaged them.
I’m always interested in taking more classes with Amara for myself and my children.
