Kids in the kitchen could mean healthier kids
While nutritionists think cooking with your kids is a great way to get them to try new things, and child psychologists are forever talking about the importance of spending time with your kids, bringing the two together can kill two birds with one stone keeping everyone happy.
Teaching your children the basics of healthy eating at an early age is a big advantage and will help them in making decisions about what to eat for the rest of their lives. Helping them learn and understand nutrition is a good starting point.
A good idea would be to find some kid-friendly recipes online that are highly nutritious as well as being child friendly. And summer is the best place to start with all the fresh fruit and vegetables abound in flavours and colours that kids get excited about. Put all your fruit within easy reach and you will notice that getting them to eat their five helpings of fruit and vegetables each day is easy.
It is equally as important to talk to them about the origin of foods so they know where they come from. The easiest way to do that is to take them to a farmers market so they can buy their food directly from the people who grew it.
Cooking and baking are great ways to get your child involved in the kitchen, so get their aprons and oven mitts at the
ready and get cooking!
