Kids in the Kitchen

Do you want your child to try new foods?  One way is to get them involved in cooking.  This includes toddlers to teens.
  • Toddlers: allow them to wash the food and mix ingredients.
  • School-aged children: teach them how to follow a recipe and measure ingredients while learning math skills.
  • Teenagers: Have your teen be responsible for making a dish of their choice.

Encourage your child to taste their creation. They don't need to love it or finish it, but any bit of positive reinforcement will make them a happier cook and gourmand.

Here is a link to a Rachael Ray show of little chefs. Your child could be one of them :)
