I get my 3 year in the kitchen at every opportunity.
We talk about vegetables and fruits, she mixes (aka messes), chop food, wash dishes- yes slave labor but she loves helping.
We cook a wide variety of foods a week. Frittata’s, Roast Meats and Vegetables, Seafood and Poultry Bakes, Slow cooked meals, Soups. It’s easier to organise the house that way.
But like everything I have to change it up or the same thing gets boring. Here is a great kids lunch option (or adult) using whatever you have really from fresh vegetables to left over roast vegetables to meats, tuna, sardines, organ meat (my favourite). The base is easy, nutritious, packed with saturated fats, protein and fibre these little babies will contribute to a large amount of your daily recommended intake.
