No one has to tell a parent how difficult it is to get kids to eat anything that's not complete crap, McDonald's this and Doritos that. But celebrity chef Jehangir Mehta -- the runner-up on Food Network's The Next Iron Chef
-- is trying to change all of that with the Kids Food Adventure, two hands-on kids' cooking classes today and tomorrow at Whole Foods Belmar
, 444 South Wadsworth Boulevard in Lakewood.
Mehta will lead kids (and parents) on an interactive store tour, and give educational and creative cooking demonstrations. The adventure runs from 2 to 4 p.m. today and 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. tomorrow; admission is $30 for one child with one parent. Make a reservation at 303-935-5000.
