kids in the kitchen
Cooking with my boys comes naturally. Hamza is always happy to chop veggies and roll out pizza dough. Faris is still very young so he helps by cheering us on, clapping and just being the entertainer he is. Having them help has made a difference in what they will eat or new things that they are willing to taste. (just today Hamza tasted arugula and liked it!)
For the most part I do it because I want them to get the full experience from planting a seed and watching it grow to harvesting vegetables and finally preparing them for a meal. Food should grow in a garden it should not come in a microwavable bag, its how I grew up and that is my wish for my boys too.
