If you're caught between finding time to prepare meals and spending quality time with your children, try cooking with them. Here are suggestions for cooking with kids from "Kids in the Kitchen" in the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture's Tips for Using the Food Guide Pyramid for Young Children.

Children enjoy helping in the kitchen and often are more willing to eat foods they help prepare. Involve your child in planning and preparing some meals and snacks for the family.

It is important that you give kitchen tasks appropriate for your child's age. Be patient as your child gains new skills at different ages.

When your child is helping you with food preparation, don't forget cleanliness. Wash hands using soap and warm running water before and after handling food or utensils to prepare food.

Meal Preparation Activities for Young Children:

Children have to be shown and taught how to do these activities. Each child has his or her own pace for learning, so give it time and the skills will come. Expect a few spills. It's a small price to pay for helping your children become comfortable around food.
