Cooking with Kids

 We’ve heard from some of our customers that one of their biggest obstacles is cooking while they have to watch the kids at the same time.

Here are some tips on how to make dinnertime easier:

Get a box (shoebox or Tupperware) and fill it with crayons and paper for an easy-access-coloring-station which you can take out every time you cook to keep the children occupied.
If both parents are home, one should focus on cooking dinner and the other one takes the kids and keep them entertained away from the kitchen.
If the children are a little bit older, have them help out and be part of the process. They will love it.

Often when the parents come home at the end of the day the kids are tired and hungry. Have them sit nearby, give them a small healthy snack (so that they have room for dinner) and talk to them about their day while you cook.

We would love to hear from you about what tricks you use to make dinnertime stress-free. Please share!
