If your child likes to play around in the kitchen, AJ’s offers a Little Chefs Club for kids ages 4 to 12 and posts recipes online. While the club is not meeting in stores, AJ’s shares recipes for kids on its website.

One such recipe is “Funny Face Pitas with Hummus.” Little chefs will need two mini pita breads, two tablespoons of hummus, two to four slices of cucumber, one tablespoon of sliced black olives, two to four slices of bell pepper, two to four slices of red onions, one teaspoon of peas and two grape tomatoes, halved. Put two pieces of the bread on a plate, then spread hummus evenly on each piece of pita. Next, arrange the vegetables on the pitas and hummus to make “faces.” For example, cucumbers could be used to look like eyes and olives could be used to illustrate pupils.
