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!!
