How to raise a gourmet. Cooking with kids

Many parents think up how to encourage their child do eat anything (except of sweets of course), not to mention full five valuable meals during the day. I admit that we also experienced this with our son. It required from us doubled efforts in the kitchen and resulted in the fact that today, he eats many dishes, among of which there are many his favorite. How, then, encourage our child to eat? How to show that cooking can be fun and useful?

What has helped us, above all, it was to encourage and engage our son in cooking together, which often could be seen in our KITCHEN. And while he would mostly still bake MUFFINS (healthy!) and then eat them all at once, it is anyway worth to start with them just to encourage your child to assist in the kitchen. It is such a fun and by the way education too. Today, our son helps to prepare almost every meal and then he eats it willingly. Can be? Yes!

Besides, recently, there has appeared a unique Cookbook by Dwie Siostry Publishing House. It’s simply a hit in the category of “cooking with kids”! I wish we got it earlier into our hands. Who does not have it yet – go quick to buy it! We could already meet the friends from Seasons books (HERE on our blog) What can I say – you can not dislike them. Every season, beautifully illustrated by Rotraut Susanne Berner, we experience with them. While in the new Cookbook, we have the opportunity to cook with them. The book includes 50 favorite recipes among which you find pancakes, pizza, spaghetti or tomato soup. However, there are not only traditional recipes, but also some from oriental kitchen.
