ELMHURST, Ill. – Kids ages 4-7 can have fun learning how to make healthy and nutritious recipes that taste great. The instructor will demonstrate how to cook and bake foods that taste good and are good for you. According to Susan Moores, MS, RD, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, cooking with kids can help get them interested in trying foods they might normally turn up their noses at. We will make a recipe to taste and enough to bring home to share with mom or dad. Health’s Kitchen takes place at The Hub at Berens Park from 4-6 p.m. on Friday, January 11, or Friday, February 8. Fee is $22 for members and $27 for non-members. For more information or to register, please call Courts Plus at (630) 833-5064.

More About Berens Park
Berens Park truly has something for everyone. The original land was acquired by the park district over the course of three years in the mid-'60s, and the park was named after the founder of the Elmhurst Historical Commission, Helmut Berens. The Park District expanded the park in the mid-'70s, and in May 2002, it purchased MacCormac College and turned it into a community center at the north end of the park.
Berens features five lighted ball diamonds, three sand volleyball courts, 12 lighted tennis courts, five irrigated soccer fields, a walking/running path, parking for 600 cars, a 10,000-square-foot playground, batting cages, an 18-hole miniature golf course, 6,000-square-foot sprayground, a pavilion for parties and meetings, concessions, a sledding hill and more.
