Recipes that children can make, but are also geared toward children and their ever changing taste buds are often overlooked as we rush to grab a quick meal to place on our dinner table or grab on the go. Children learn through being taught and being empowered to make things on their own. Each of my boys are fully capable of cooking for themselves because with careful planning, ingenuity and close oversight they were given opportunities to flex their culinary muscles. We started small at first and grew to larger and better things as they were ready and showed that they were both capable and responsible. We have always had a gas stove top, sometimes I was more nervous than they were! Give them the opportunity to help and you will instill both a love for cooking and a love for creating delicious food at home!
