While at one of our co-ops a couple of weeks ago, Little Miss had the opportunity to try out some nylon knives by Curious Chef (affiliate link). I was so enamoured with the idea, that I bought a set for her. We tried it out the evening we got them, and they were a hit! They are really neat because they will cut through fruits and veggies, but won’t cut skin. Here she is prepping some of the green peppers for our fajitas:
She also chopped up mushrooms and my avocado. She was so eager to continue helping that she suggested making lemonade:
The beautiful part? She ate it. Woot! Because, you know, when children participate in food prep, they are more likely to give it a shot when it lands on the dinner table. (Yes, I said “more likely”. There are no guarantees in life.)
Just like that time we made pizza, and she added all the toppings herself. She never eats the whole thing, but she did this time!
How do you include your children in the kitchen?
