As a nutritionist my interest in offering healthy food for children of course grew with my daughter. And so, I dug deeper in learning about how to offer nutritious foods that young children will eat. My daughter was not only cooperative and very willing to help with cooking, but she also started showing a growing interest in food as we created our little daily routine of cooking together. She would “slice” veggies with her children’s knife, or rinse the salad; she would mix the bowl and add some spices to a curry. It is always fun and further fosters our bonding.
Do you want your toddler to be more interested in food? Cooking together is great not just in creating a positive association with food, but it’s also a bonding experience. And if you’re weary of creating mess in the kitchen, just come to my cooking class where you won’t have to do any cleaning up after the cooking is done! 🙂
