How do you get your kids excited about food? For fussy eaters, it isn’t always easy but understanding where food comes from and the effort that goes into making meals can make a big difference. After all, being in the kitchen can be a fun activity and children are always more inclined to eat what they’ve helped to prepare.
The key to training mini sous chefs is to start small: little hands are perfect for food prep and sometimes, the tasks you find the most monotonous will be the most exciting for children. So get your kids peeling garlic cloves, shelling beans and peas, using the salad spinner and adding spices and salt.
Making meals with your kids is also a fantastic way to talk about different countries and cultures and share your own food stories. It’s about finding time to making meaningful family moments… and get dinner ready too!
