Recipes for Kids in the Kitchen
Kids cooking. It’s the perfect combination of learning essential life skills while gaining an appreciation for all the great flavors and foods available today. Whether they are old enough to cook entirely on their own or need your guidance, you can make kitchen adventures easier and more enjoyable by mixing in some ABCs.
A = Attitude About Food
Be a positive role model and avoid labeling foods as good or bad. Teach your kids to enjoy everything, and balance choices with sensible portions and daily activity. Since including sweets and treats is part of a positive attitude, bake Chocolate Chip Cookies with Candy Pieces, then devour a few of the freshly baked whole-grain cookies with a big glass of nutrient-rich milk.
I’d love to hear about your kitchen escapades with the kids, especially if you make one of these easy, nutrient-rich recipes. Drop me a line at facebook.com/myindianahome.
