Getting the kids in the kitchen at an early age will not only get them interested in eating and trying different foods, but will also teach them valuable life lessons, that will, (hopefully), mean they won’t be eating instant mac & cheese every day when they’re out on their own.
National Kids Take Over The Kitchen Day, is when the kids get to be the chef, and make the food choices for the family. Here are some easy recipe ideas you can help them with to get you started…
