Get Kids Cookin'!
Cooking with your kids is a great way to bring the family together at mealtimes. Plus it helps introduce them to good eating choices.

Make the tasks simple.
Counting out the pepperoni, stirring the sauce, washing the vegetables are easy ways for kids to help. Once their skills begin to improve, the tasks can get more complex.
