Recipes for Kids: Simple Dinners and Lunchbox Snacks
It's never too early to teach children and students about food and the joys of home cooking. Shopping for and preparing the ingredients which go into a dish can involve all of our senses, talking about the recipe and going through the different steps of preparation helps us relate to each other and to the food we eat. Learning how to cook together and sharing a meal with each other can create a much closer relationship with the food we eat. In today's fast-paced world, it can be an especially rewarding experience when your family manages to carve out some time for a simple dinner -- share the fun of making these simple, tasty recipes with your kids.
