NEW YORK, Oct. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Parents shop with ease, while your kids join Fairway Market's second "Foodie Friends Class" with Children's Culinary Instructor, Hannah Netter. This comprehensive class will teach kids how to navigate the store and shop, pack their own lunch, prepare fresh dishes, and understand healthy routines and will include Halloween colors and art.  The class will start on Wednesday, October 17 from 4 to 5 pm for ages 4 to 6 and from 5 to 6pm for ages 7-11 at the Woodland Park Fairway Market (1510 US 46 West).

The Fairway Market "Foodie Friends Class" will inspire kids to be independent with their food choices and with small responsibilities like preparing their own simple meals.

"We want to educate youngsters to become aware of what they are eating at an early age in order to develop smart eating habits," said Herb Ruetsch, CEO of Fairway Market. "This is a great way to give back to the communities that we serve and the classes are ongoing throughout the year."

Each participant will take home a Fairway Market lunch box that they will have time to decorate during the class; a coupon for their guardians to come back and shop; the food they prepared during the class; a Fairway grocery pad and pen; and a fun recap of what they accomplished for the day.
