Inviting Children into the Kitchen

I brought my children up, teaching them to cook and play with me in the kitchen. They grew up to be excellent chefs with knowledge of wholesome ingredients and nutrition.  They learned how to create raw as well as cooked recipes.  Ingredients that we discovered at the farmer’s market always inspired us for our cooking adventures.  In their younger years, we went from easy recipes that involved the least amount of cutting and chopping, to adding more complex skills as they grew up.  Most of these recipes involve the use of a food processor.

The recipes that I created were not only good for my kids, they were also used at their school, where I changed school snacks and treats to a policy of no sugar, dairy, chocolate, artificial colors/ dyes or wheat.
I made this change in the school’s policy during 1990-1994, way ahead of the realization that sugar and other additives can create sensitivities in children.
Nuts were removed from the recipes for those who have nut allergies.

I invite you to bring your children into the kitchen at an early age and get them involved with cooking.  Check out my mini meatloaves recipe.
