Kids are sponges, constantly soaking up any information we give them, including information about our lifestyle. Kids look up to, and typically want to be like their parents when they grow up. In order for kids to learn how to eat healthy and prepare nutritious meals throughout life, it has to be something they are exposed to during childhood.
Growing up with a family that eats lots of veggies, fruits, whole grains, good proteins and other healthy foods will make them more likely to stick to that lifestyle once they become adults as well.
Learning how to cook is an important skill that sometimes doesn’t happen until people live on their own for the first time as adults. To teach your kids the lifelong skill of cooking, be sure to include them in grocery shopping, food preparation and cooking while they are still little. Not only will your child be more prepared to live healthy once they reach adulthood, but they will gain valuable bonding time with their parents and be grateful for the time spent together. So put on your apron, your kiddo’s too, and get to cooking!
