Cooking with children has many benefits. From team building to early math and science skills, children who cook their own foods will enjoy an opportunity to learn and create together! An easy way to make healthy muffins is to throw all of the ingredients into a blender, mix them up and then pour directly into muffins tins to bake! Children in a group can take turns adding different items to the blender, while discussing measurements and nutrition.
Children have a curiosity about the world around them. They wonder about how things came to be, and where things come from. This curiosity often expands to their own plates during mealtimes! Children will ask questions about where their food comes from and will be curious to learn about its history. Books are a great way for children to explore the history and story of their foods. Stories about healthy foods also offer an opportunity to talk to children about healthy eating and nutrition.
