What is it about cooking in the kitchen that is so appealing to children?
Of course, it’s an exciting adventure when they can be in charge! This fun activity combines the delicious flavors of toasted waffles, crunchy apple slices, smooth cream cheese, and a dash of fragrant cinnamon for a tasty treat. Help your child gather ingredients, then let them lead the way and presto! Your child has created a nutritious snack you will both approve of. Exploring flavors and textures expands taste horizons. Letting your child do tasks they are ready for when cooking even encourages trying new foods. A bonus to cooking with your child is that talking about the different tastes, textures, and techniques will boost language skills. This is a special time to create strong family bonds and foster positive attitudes towards food, so don’t hesitate to invite your little ones into the kitchen. Preparing food together satisfies their curiosity and nourishes their growth in a fun and engaging way.
