Denise's Healthy Steps's Mission

To empower and educate our children and families with the important skills of nutrition and healthy cooking so they can make informed decisions for a lifetime of wellness.  As a certified Health Coach and trained instructor I am able to reach families who need help to defeat obesity and related illnesses.
As a partner with Healthy Hands Cooking we follow the pediatric nutrition standards and recommendations as set by The Global College of Natural Medicine.  We are a registered community partner with the US Department of Agriculture's Nutrition Communicator's Network, Magnet Schools and a "" educator.  


 Denise's Healthy Steps Believes In...

From making a simple healthy meal to frosting the perfect cake, our young chefs will be fully immersed in the cooking process and learn valuable tips, tools, and techniques (including kitchen safety and safe knife skills) along the way. 
Your child will have the opportunity to explore high-quality ingredients and prepare delicious, seasonally-based menus. At Denise's Healthy Steps, I use ingredients sourced directly from local farmers and community markets that I know and believe in. 


 Meet Denise 


Hey everyone, I am Denise Bradley.  I am so excited to work with you and help your families learn about Healthy cooking.  My journey started when I needed to learn more about the relationship between food and my health.  The changes I have made have made a huge difference that is why I want to help others gain the skills to learn too.   I am not a professional chef but a mom on a mission to eat healthier and get my family to as well.
Why should you attend one of my classes?  
Not only am I a mom of 4 picky teens, but I am also a certified Health Coach with the Dr. Sears Wellness Institute.  I have worked with many clients as well as with Dr.'s patients to help them make changes.  One thing I have learned is that people know that they need to make a change but they don't because they don't have the skills & tools.  That is where I come in.  My job is to share ideas to help fill your toolbox so that you will be inspired to make healthier choices.  I have found that when people know why they need to make a change and have that tools they make the them and gain success to living healthier.
My classes are perfect for afterschool programs, homeschool groups, library programs, boyscouts & girlscouts troops, and so much more.  They are affordable because I supply everything you need at each class.  Also I am mobile so I bring the class to your location.
