Cooking with Kids

cookingwithkids.jpgA great way to get your kids to eat their vegetables (and meat, and anything else they might turn their sweet little noses up at) is to have them help out in the kitchen.

But when you?re trying to get dinner on the table, sometimes it seems easier to just do it yourself and keep the kids on the sidelines. However, this can eliminate a valuable opportunity to not only bond with your kids, but also to take part in a great learning opportunity for them. By helping out in the kitchen, kids can learn a variety of skills, including math skills (measurements, addition, subtraction), science (mixing and chemical reactions, cooking, boiling) and hands-on opportunities to create something.

This article has some tips on age-appropriate tasks that children can complete in the kitchen. It?s written by a children?s cooking teacher, and the handy tables might be helpful for the next time you make a meal and want the kids to help.
