Episode 30: How To Get Kids Into The Kitchen and How It Can Change Everything

Empowering children with health education and culinary skills can help teach them the know-how they can use throughout their lifetime. Today is the day we’re talking about how to support a child’s healthy relationship with food, and how to get kids into the kitchen. This is perhaps one of the most vital physical and mental health habits we can nourish and nurture.

In our first season of the podcast, we did an episode on how to raise adventurous eaters. In this episode, we’re taking it a step further and addressing how we can build our children’s kitchen literacy from a young age.
