1. I’m a big fan of letting our kids involve in the kitchen. Do it early and often! My best childhood memories are of cooking with my mother and grandmothers.

  2. I started my daughter in the kitchen around 3; smoothies, food processor, juicing – she loved everything that made noise. By 4 we got into measuring and mixing – cookies & muffins. At 5 or so she started peeling potatoes and carrot, but I am lucky if there’s any to eat once she’d peeled it. The good news is that now, at 6, she makes herself a sandwich every morning while I pack her lunch. Great teamwork and I admire her independence. And she loves to say: “Mommy, remember when…” about her experiences while we do. Teaching her to cook was one of the best moves I’ve made. I hope she continues to love it.
