Kids in the Kitchen
Getting your kids in the kitchen has so many benefits. They will learn valuable life skills, spend time with you and have fun at the same time. Don’t worry if you aren’t a great cook yourself because you are bound to know more than they do! Start with the basics and then you can get more fancy and creative as time goes by.
One of the easiest ways to get your kids involved is to start with very easy recipes that don’t require any cooking at all. Make something healthy and fun with Tristin and Tyler from Tales of the City and Hannah from Today I Ate A Rainbow this video will encourage your kids to get in the kitchen and whip up their own Rainbow Fruits sticks.
Or work on knife skills by preparing a simple snack of apple slices with cinnamon.
The important thing to remember when cooking with you kids is to have fun!
