School Hols Again?

Teaching kids’ stuff in the kitchen is a great activity.  Realistically it is a necessary life skill, so getting them comfortable with smaller jobs in the kitchen is a great start.  Obviously, jobs need to be age appropriate & we aren’t talking gourmet chef kinda stuff.

Help out regularly with:

💡 Washing fruit and vege before eating

💡 Peeling vegetables

💡 Cutting up the fruit & vege

💡 Grating any cheese, or vegetables

💡 Cracking an egg & whisking

💡 Of course, setting the table

Even set aside an afternoon regularly, for bigger things or simple recipes

💡 Reading recipes & using measuring spoons & cups

💡 Scrambled eggs, add in some chopped vege THINK mushrooms, parsley, tomatoes & fetta

💡 Roast some vege.  👉  Aim for LOs (leftovers) so you can have either a skillet brekky tomorrow morning or frittata tomorrow night

💡 Spag bog is a great starter dish, add in some grated vege, maybe some lentils or beans.  👉  Remember to make it a big batch so you can freeze some!

Try out your fav easy recipe or look for an option online.  Kids love to help & get creative; it may inspire them to try some new foods.  Plus, who knows you may have a budding chef, who wants to do more cooking!  It makes some fantastic memories (although there may be a bit of mess at the time).

I am incredibly passionate about food and its healing power – it is pretty amazing how what you eat affects how your body works! In fact, I was so fascinated, I went & got myself a degree in it – a Bachelor of Health Science (Nutritional and Dietetic Medicine). Now in all honesty I don’t eat or live a perfect lifestyle, nor will I ever pretend I do. Realistically I know you won’t be perfect either. And that’s OK. As a Clinical Nutritionist I focus on what we eat and how this has an impact on our health and wellness – everyday.
