A while back I blogged about “10 Tips for Raising Healthy Eaters — Even Away From Home.” Much to my chagrin, it occurred to me later that I had actually forgotten the most important tip.
Involve your kids in cooking. Teach them to cook. Or if that’s not your forte, sign them up for cooking lessons.
The sooner kids learn that food is a creative process – that it’s something you make, not something you get from a box – the sooner they’ll start to really appreciate food. This means they’ll naturally gravitate towards real, healthy food, as opposed to processed foods. (And yes, there’s plenty of processed organic food nowadays too!)
Have you taught your kids to cook? I can’t wait till they can do all the cooking! Works for me!
