Did you know inviting your kids into the kitchen will help them make healthier eating choices? Involving your child in mealtime prep allows them to feel pride and accomplishment in the task at hand - like chopping broccoli. Take a peek into my latest community education class, Kids in the Kitchen. We had a blast making Homemade BBQ Sauce, Broccoli Medallions, Honey Mustard Pretzel-Crusted Chicken Tenderloins and Coconut Date Balls. The kids had SO much fun, and I think the adults did, too! The recipes for all the "kid-tested and approved" items are at the end of the post - you don't want to miss 'um - maybe dinner tonight?
Of course, my boys best liked the part they were able to (HULK) SMASH something!
We measured. We used sharp objects. There were very hot pans. The kids were really cooking!
All the foods were well received by the kids, except for the broccoli medallions, but the moms liked those best - so we didn't mind a couple extra nibbles.
And by the end we were TOO squirrely!
Here are the links to the yummy, fantastic, got to try for dinner tonight recipes:
