Cooking with kids!

I love when my kids are at school 😉 ! I also love when school is canceled, or rainy days when you are stuck inside. Yesterday was one of those days  so I let two of my children and a friend make muffins!

Getting your kids into cooking helps them understand more about what they are eating. It will help them when they are older; they will be less afraid of trying new foods and more able to cook for themselves. You can involve your children in many ways, I always seem to have at least one helper at dinnertime. Giving them the simplest jobs like, Garbage person (collecting all vegetable peels,packaging etc..and putting in the trash) Vegetable washer, Go-to person (fetching ingredients from fridge,cupboard, etc).Even if they just stick their finger in the bowl, lick the spoon and make a mess. Get kids involved!!

    A macromom myself I’m always happy to meet other families who are into macrobiotics. You have a great website! Many greetings from Austria! Isabel

  2. Hi Sarah. Just wanted to say what a lovely video of your children baking. Oh how I wish I had found macro when my children were young, but I am trying to believe that it is never too late, and so am beginning my journey with macrobiotic cooking. A bit daunting, but I will try hard!

    Thanks for this site.
    Lots of love
