Cooking with kids - what better way to spend some quality time with your grandchildren, than to teach them how to cook?
With two working parents in most families these days, kids are more likely to learn how to serve up take-out meals. They think that cakes grow in bakeries and meals come from delis.
Often, only Grandma or Grandpa will make time for cooking with kids.
If you are not a "working" Gran, perhaps you can show them how much fun
it is to cook from scratch. Most children love to make cookies and
cakes, but they can also enjoy preparing veggie snacks, making smoothies
and in fact with a little help they could prepare a whole meal.

When the grandchildren are older, pre-teen and teens, the time spent together in the kitchen is a wonderful opportunity to grow your loving relationship with them. There is something about working side by side that encourages conversation and sharing. Make the most of it - it is precious time!
