02 Apr Giveaway: Fabulous Apron from Faux Gourmet!
Feeling fabulous while I cook gets me in the kitchen in a flash. Although I love my 4-inch sparkly heels, I just can’t wear them while I cook. When I came across Faux Gourmet, I simply loved their philosophy about “looking…and cooking the part.” They sell matching tutu-inspired aprons for both kids and adults. Once you’ve got the gear, it’s time for everyone to start cooking!
Cooking with Kids
Getting your kids cooking in the kitchen from an early age offers numerous benefits:
- It’s a fun way to bond with them.
- Entices kids’ senses and offers new challenges
- It gets kids excited about healthy eating
- It helps encourage kids to try new foods
- At the market. Bring your kids along while grocery shopping. It’s a great way to get them excited about healthy eating and to get them involved in meal planning and preparation. I enjoy taking my kids to the local farmer’s market on Saturdays. They love chatting with the farmers about the produce they see.
- Prep Time. Assign individual age-appropriate tasks from to each child (if you’re cooking with several kids). Leave simple tasks like washing producte and fetching packages (from lower shelves) to younger kids while cracking eggs, mixing ingredients, and setting the table to the older ones. Be sure the tasks keep them involved during the entire process from shopping and planning to preparation and clean up. This will keep your kids stimulated, interested, and exposed to all the different stages of cooking.
