ParentMap and PCC Natural Markets have partnered to produce an exciting web series called Healthy Kids Cook, designed to encourage families to make a healthy habit of cooking fresh food together in the kitchen, and to help explore the farm-to-table journey of some of your favorite foods. 

In this episode, PCC Chef Jackie Freeman takes us on a field trip to beloved Ellenos Real Greek Yogurt at Pike Place Market. Then she and her young assistants head into the TasteMobile's kitchen to prepare a fast and delicious snack that will have kids gobbling down an array of fresh vegetables and protein-packed Greek yogurt.

Packed in tiny canning jars, these easy, healthy and super-yummy snacks are easy to take on the go.
