The Rainbow Plate & Le Dolci Collaborate for Nutrition Month

Rainbow Plate is coming to Le Dolci for children’s workshops – exposing children to fresh, real food in a relaxed and interactive setting. Read below about Nutrition Month, and contact us to book your child’s birthday party with Rainbow Plate and us.
 
This March, as Dietitians of Canada launches its annual Nutrition Month, food education program Rainbow Plate kicks its growth plan into high gear. With Statistics Canada reporting that 31% of Canadian children are overweight or obese, the timing is critical. The subsequent health risks and healthcare costs arising from poor eating habits during childhood and adolescence underscore the need to counteract the problem with nutrition education.
 
Throughout the month of March, Rainbow Plate will be sharing its food and nutrition expertise and serving up hands on programming to kids and adults to combat negative interactions around food at home or at school.
 
The Rainbow Plate’s top tips to create positive interactions around food:
• Make food an adventure with your family. Discover the fun and fascinating side of food. Encourage your child to use their senses to explore and describe colours, textures and tastes.
• Eat together with your child as often as you can. Make the goal to create relaxed and pleasant mealtimes.
• Play the long game – children need to learn to like new foods. Did you know that the average child needs 15 tries before they will like something new?
• Bring your kids shopping. Try to involve them in meal and snack preparation, and they’ll be more likely to eat what they’ve prepared.

Happy Birthday Cupcake Decorating Fun in Toronto!

Who doesn’t love birthdays and cupcakes? Since Le Dolci opened its doors last April we have been lucky enough to host many silly and sugary birthday parties for cupcake lovers of all ages!

Whether it’s a birthday party for your little one or your grandmother, it’s bound to be a fun time with lots of laughs and maybe even a little icing on your nose. While at the studio feel free to grab a boa, Mardi-Gras beads or even a cowboy hat to create some memorable photos to share.

Party-goers will learn how to work with fondant and buttercream icing, taste testing along the way of course. At the end of the party, each person will be able to take home a box of creatively decorated all natural cupcakes to enjoy.

We can host parties of up to twenty  cup-cakers in the downtown studio, work with some of our fave venues in the city or we can bring the cupcake fun to you!
