Cooking a meal together is one of the best ways for a family to spend time together while teaching kids a skill they can use for the rest of their life. Preparing a meal with your family makes the whole process more fun. It can also encourage kids to try new foods and create different recipes.
Teaching kids about healthy foods and nutrition will be easier if they are in the kitchen helping you. They’ll be more likely to eat it if they helped make it.
Cooking together can begin by looking through recipes together and choosing something new to make. You can look at ethnic recipes which are popular with other cultures and will teach your children about their world along with a lesson on food.
You can even turn one night into ethnic food night and find information on the culture whose recipe you are making. This is just one idea on how to make food fun for everyone and spend quality time together as a family. The important thing about cooking together is that you are connecting with each other. This has become more of a challenge in recent years since everyone is running in different directions.
