Future Foodies Start Today!

Make a mess cooking, then clean it up!

Bringing children into the kitchen on a busy weeknight may seem like a terrible idea. And it may not be the quickest way to get dinner on the table. But making the space and time for kids to work with you is so rewarding in the long-run!

Cooking with kids is a great way for them to:

  • Practice following instructions and staying organized
  • Work with math concepts like fractions and measures
  • Develop functional life skills

And best of all, cooking with kids will create life-long memories!

Our brains tend to guard and protect any memory that has a scent attached to it. It's why when you smell certain things you’re transported back in time to a key memory. Create those kinds of moments with your kids, too!

So get some ingredients, accept your kitchen will be a mess, and make delicious memories!
