Do your kids love to help in the kitchen? I’m sure they do, because every kid that I know loves to cook. So if you haven’t let your child help with preparing meals and making healthy foods I definitely suggest starting now. Start small, make it fun, and get them cooking. It’s a great life skill to learn too 😉
