Culinary Kids Create SWEET SUCCESS
Children are naturally curious when it comes to the ways of the kitchen, and parents are equally curious about how to include them in cooking and baking activities.
"The best way to promote lifelong healthy eating is to get kids involved in cooking at an early age," said Mitzi Dulan, registered dietitian and author. "Promoting the kitchen as a fun gathering place for the whole family will help build a positive attitude towards enjoying food."
