Madiba Restaurant in Brooklyn, New York runs a special program, dubbed 'Cooking With Color 4 Kids' ,that uses the basic principles of color theory to teach kids about healthy cooking and eating. The color palette is used to introduce children to the art and science of cooking healthy, nutritious and delicious meals using a variety of natural ingredients.
Cooking With Color 4 Kids isn't only strictly for kids either; parents are also invited to join in on the fun and educational experience. The classes begin with an introduction to the 'color wheel' and the benefits of eating fruits and vegetables in each color spectrum.
Since Madiba is a South African restaurant -- 'Madiba' was an affectionate nickname for Nelson Mandela -- many of the dishes on the menu are South African specialties.
