Kids Get Cooking!

Easter is over and thank goodness I did not have to cook. We went to my sister’s house where she prepared a wonderful meal.  I don’t cook – figuring out what to serve each night for my kids stresses me out as I want my kids to eat healthy and I want to prepare healthy meals but it’s not something I like to do. (Many nights are either whole grain/wheat pasta or a trip to Whole Foods market’s prepared food section!) Ironically my 9 year old loves to take cooking classes!

So glad that I found this online series from Weight Watchers called “Cooking With Kids” video series, which brings to life teachable moments to help kids value fresh and healthy foods and to instill good eating habits at an early age.  I like that is it educational as well.  Kids (and parents) can learn, where the food is harvested, the culture behind the food the difference between fresh food and processed food.

Renowned chef Lidia Bastianich and chocolatier Jacques Torres along with the kids go behind-the-scenes to learn the art of selecting fresh foods at the market and preparing them in nutritious, tasty foods.  From homemade pasta to roasting cocoa beans for chocolate, kids get hands-on experience and learn the value of healthful eating.  It’s also fun to watch with your kids.

Bon Appétit!
