Kids who grow up learning the importance of food are more likely to make healthy food choices on their own. So it's important to explain where our food comes from, what it does for our body, and how we can make it delicious. And there's nothing like cooking with your children to instill these lifelong lessons.
But it doesn't have to be hard! Once upon a time, I was a nanny, and it was a great experience to help me pick up a few tricks that seem to be universal:
1. Everyday food is sure to please if you add a wacky twist. Kids get curious and excited to try it, every time.
2. When kids create something themselves in the kitchen, they are guaranteed to try it (and love it).
These Gluten-Free Waffle Pizzas are fun for kids to make and eat (and make for an easy meal and little to no mess). Better yet, they offer the perfect opportunity to introduce new veggies in a fun way. You can even bunch up an assortment of colorful veggies and allow each person to top their own pizza or add a challenge to see who can create the most colorful pizza.
