It’s not easy to get kids to try new foods. Most research suggests it takes an average of ten to twelve attempts before a child will try something new. However, that same research suggests that involving your children in the actual process of cooking a meal, exponentially increases the likelihood of that child trying a new food group.
Learning about food and cooking is an active way to help breed a sense of culinary adventure. If you have a child, today when you cook let him/her help set the table, rinse the veggies and measure the food which are all safe tasks for a little one.
