Teaching kids to prepare their own food is as important as teaching them life skills like keeping a budget and taking showers =) When kids learn to prepare food, it does so many things for their self esteem.
- Their confidence grows.
- It gives them a sense of independence.
- It teaches them to make healthy choices within certain parameters.
- It reinforces the source of their food, and that it doesn’t have to “come from a box”.
- It teaches them that it is actually faster to prepare their own meal than it is to go through a drive through.
And, it gives you a few minutes back to your day. Yippee!!
