The Dr. Yum Project offers a series of FREE resources for families to gain information and inspiration on how to involve the whole family in planning meals and cooking at home.

We are adding things all the time. Stay in the loop and Sign up for updates.

Meal-o-Matic

During this extended time at home, one fun thing families can do is bring everyone together to create a customized recipe using ingredients you have on hand with Meal-O-Matic. It’s also a great way to let older kids be in charge of dinner.

Live Meal-o-Matic Cooking CLasses

Let's get together virtually and make a delicious dinner out of whatever you have on hand. Learn how easy it is to use Dr. Yum's Meal-O-Matic (it's free!) to create your own masterpiece. It’s like a choose-your-own-adventure recipe! We intentionally keep these classes small so everyone can be seen and heard.

Tickets are free but limited.
