Cook Time with Remmi: Back to School Snacks!

Our Superstar and long-time friend Remmi Smith from “Cook Time with Remmi” has been up to so much since the last time we caught up with her.

14-year-old Remmi Smith is star of “Cook Time with Remmi,” and “The Culinary Kid,” shows through which she encourages kids to take her “C.H.E.F. Challenge” to “cook healthy and exercise frequently”. Her goal is to show kids how to prepare a complete, healthy meal for their families so they can be the star cook in their kitchen! We love working with Remmi because she inspires kids just like you to be active and healthy.

Remmi has done a great video blog for Back to School season with awesome recipes – perfect for an after-school snack!! What do you like to eat after school? Find some healthy inspiration here!
