Do you think teaching kids to cook is too much of a hassle? It’s easier to do it yourself, right? But do you know of a better way for kids to learn to eat healthy than to cook their own food? Having recipes kids can make could change the future for them. See how it did for me. 

One time I got to cook a recipe with my aunt Chelle and we pretended to have a Julia Child tv show. Click here to see the impact Julia Child has had on me. It was the best. I loved cooking with my mom and my grandma. It was a special time we spent together.

When I was a young adult, I hated to cook, but over time, when I learned to be creative and pool from my inner Julia, I began to love it. 

Cooking teaches kids a number of important math, reading, and science lessons. There is a ton of fine motor development involved in cooking as well. Teach your kids to cook early and they will develop better eating habits for the future as well as being able to care for themselves when they get out on their own.

They’ll have the confidence to get in there and make their own food. They may even be feeding you sometimes as well.
