Ready to talk about food?
Food is such a big part of our everyday that there is no shortage of topics and resources you could explore with your children. I am barely scratching the surface today. Nutrition, food preparation, and gardening are all great topics to discuss. Communicating about how, why, and what we eat helps our kids learn good eating habits as well as understand some of the methods to our madness.

Obviously, you can’t talk about food without making some and eating some. Cooking with your kids can be a rewarding experience, especially if you tie it into the reading you’ve been doing. If you read a book about pancakes, then go make some pancakes together. It’s that easy.
If you’re not sure how to start cooking with kids, buy my ebook: Cooking with Children. It’s chock full of recipes and tips for cooking with kids.
