Camp Wannalaffalotta: Food, Glorious Food

Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 18, 2010 @ 1:32 am In Camp Wannalaffalotta | 7 Comments

[4]This will be the last installment of Camp Wannalaffalotta [5] for the summer. Where did the time go? The FishFam had a great, albeit too short, summer [6]. I hope you did, too.

But, really, the activities laid out in Camp Wannalaffalotta can provide hours of family engagement all year long. Next rainy day, go browse the archives. Or if you’re building a preschool experience [7] at home, the Camp Wannalaffalotta series [5] can provide a wealth of topics to explore.

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.

[22]Get Cooking!

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 [22]. It’s chock full of recipes and tips for cooking with kids.
