This Nutrition Week, Let’s Cook Together
Kids are curious creatures; they learn new things. They are always keen to know what is behind them, so let them know what’s cooking. Kids are ever ready to help, so let this little bundle of love do small and easy cooking stuff like stirring, measuring, grating salad, cutting fruits, and of course, decorating and serving the prepared dish. Children love to shower their parents with their newly learned skills. Hence, even if they have prepared an easy fruit salad, they will enjoy it like never before and continue eating until every trace of their meal vanishes from their plate. Well, you have to be very slow, but it’s a win-win scenario for parents when the kids will learn from the aroma of the dish they earlier disliked.
Don’t Play the Force Game
Children are naturally very picky; they may love anything today, but tomorrow may not even get bothered to share a glance with it. So don’t expect your kids to like everything you serve. Even after too much effort, they can refuse it constantly. But this doesn’t give us any reason to force them even if we sometimes become very picky with tastes. So better encourage them with different presentations, seasonings, and combinations of the same dish. Choice and Variety are what all notorious children love, so let them explore, let them choose but never force.
