Get Cooking With Your Kids
Did you enjoy food from early age? Then remember to pass on a love of cooking to the children in your life.
Science classes can be dry and abstract for children. Food gives kids an exciting hands-on opportunity to learn things like why foods brown or get crispy. Cooking is also a sneaky way of helping them learn simple math skills like fractions and household measurements.
Kid-friendly Recipe Ideas:
- Appoint your child “Chief Scooper” and create these great stuffed mushrooms.
- Show your child the magic of “low and slow.” Ask them to measure out and add a few vegetables and seasonings to a slow cooker in the morning, and voila dinner will be ready after school. Check out this easy chicken and pasta soup recipe.
- Give your kids permission to “play with their mashed potatoes” and you will be enjoying a Garlic mashed pizza in no time. Need we say more?
Best of all, food provides a medium for expressing love. Yes, your kitchen may be a little messier. But your memory bank will be a whole lot fuller.
