Kroger’s Atlanta Division has launched its Chef Junior program and initiative aimed at developing the culinary talents of its youngest shoppers, hosted throughout more than 20 stores throughout Georgia.

Each 20-minute workshop includes the personal guidance of a Kroger Chef as the children learn to create tasty food items, including cupcake decorating and creating your own fruit pizza. As part of every experience, children receive Kroger Chef Junior items, including an apron, chef’s hat, recipe box, a cooking utensil and a patch.

“Nutritional education begins at a young age,” says Glynn Jenkins, public relations director for Kroger’s Atlanta Division. “Kroger is committed to fostering a life-long love of cooking for our young shoppers, and the Chef Junior program is just one tangible example of the many ways we proudly support the communities we serve.”

Additionally, each junior chef takes home a recipe card with step-by-step instructions to continue the experience at home with a made-from-scratch recipe. Kroger Chef Junior workshops are recommended for children ages 4-10 years old, but all are welcome.
