Why Your Kids Should Help Prepare Meals

By Chris Jordan

Every weekend when I prepare my list for the grocery store I encourage my kids pull out the cookbooks, thumb through them, and tell me if they see anything interesting. I know that you can search for recipes online, but flipping through an actual book is an entirely different experience. It enables you to see recipes and foods that you would never search for left to our own devices. I am positive that my children would pull up a search on a recipe website, type in chocolate and leave it at that.
