The greenhouse at Metzler's Garden Center is an oasis on a cold winter day. Children in search of Zachary, the resident talking parrot, dodge dangling greenery and tables of flowers to find him. "It's a beautiful place in the winter, lush and green," said Andrea Ratajczak, Metzler's activity coordinator. But on Saturday, some of the flowers in the greenhouse were more than beautiful. They were delicious. These delectable plants were entries in an edible art competition. Using candy, pretzels and colored frosting, schoolchildren created bouquets, flowering trees and Lifesaver flowers blooming next to a pond of gummy fish.

Chef and cooking instructor Nikki McGowan spices up traditional shepherd's pie with kid-friendly Mexican seasonings. The pie is simple enough for kids to help cook, too. During the busy school year, McGowan suggests prepping the pie (with the help of the kids) on Sunday, so it's ready to “pop into the oven on a crazy night of homework and after-school activities.” She recommends serving the pie with hot sauce and tortilla chips. “Kids can eat it by scooping it up with the chips,” she says.

B&O American Brasserie sous chef (and native Marylander) Matt Kane spends his days off getting down and dirty in his kitchen with his 4-year old daughter Addison. Together, they cook hearty breakfasts, like this simple but delicious vegetable-heavy Denver omelet casserole. "This is a great recipe to do with kids because it allows them to get a little messy, have fun and eat well without realizing it," says Kane. Kane takes a casual approach to cooking with kids, understanding that small hands aren't able to do everything perfectly.

Gia Daniella learned to cook from her mother, Giovanna Blattermann, a first-generation American who moved from Sicily to Baltimore's Little Italy as a girl. Today, Gia passes along that knowledge to her children in the kitchen of Café Gia, the Little Italy restaurant she owns with her mom. Gia's children, 4-and-a-half-year-old Luca and 10-month-old Giada, help her in small ways as she teaches them the ins and outs of Italian cuisine. "Luca loves setting the table while I do extensive cooking," she said.

Riccardo Bosio knows that great food - and great eating habits - start with fresh, whole ingredients. Bosio, the owner of the upscale Italian restaurant Sotto Sopra in Mount Vernon, can often be found in his home kitchen with his wife, Monika, and their daughters Amelia, 3, and Victoria, who will be 2 months old in June. "We cook at home and at the restaurant," says Bosio. "Amelia is always with us cooking. We try to teach her how things are made by hand. " Young Amelia loves healthy ingredients, like fresh pasta, Parmesan cheese and even spinach.

Until recently, Darrell Waddell, 16, and Kevin Baldwin, 15, say they had no place to hang out but the streets. The teenage boys live in Brooklyn Homes, a sprawling public housing development in South Baltimore with 500 homes and more than 1,000 children. Yesterday, they played bumper pool as music thumped in the background. Younger children swarmed around them, playing pool (or attempting to), pingpong and air hockey. Nearby, two children watched The Little Rascals. The Brooklyn community center was officially christened a Boys & Girls Club of Metropolitan Baltimore yesterday, making it one of three clubs the national group will have opened in less than a year in an effort to boost its profile in Baltimore and provide youths a safe space to hang out and benefit from its education, prevention and other programs.

The Harford County Boys and Girls Club has hit upon an idea that is making a difference in the academic outlook of some members of the club. The bright idea is Robomaniacs, a team of five 11- to 13-year-old members of the Boys and Girls Club who are assembling, programming and operating robots for design demonstrations. The team gave a demonstration of its skills for backers Thursday at Vitali's Restaurant in Edgewood. This program identifies children who are typically underperforming academically, organizers said, but who gain strong motivation in math and science skills through participation in Robomaniacs.
