Each morning we wake up as a family, get ready for the day and try to eat breakfast together. Some days it works out some days Rob is running out the door because he spend too much time goofing off with the kids. If we have our act together I try to make the kids something instead of just relying on frozen waffles and cereal. This week Shae wanted to try something new with her eggs to make them different and BETTER.
The first day she asked for something “fancy” on them. Chives have a great flavor and she loves onion so that is what we did. The next day we chopped up some grape tomatoes, another favorite of hers. Next I want to suggest sauteed mushrooms or spinach. This is a great way to doctor up a simple meal, encourage more veggie consumption and broaden tastebuds.
Letting your child pick ingredients is a way to get them to try new things. This could be right out of the fridge or in the produce aisle at the grocery store.
Come join me and my co-hosts, Sarah of Play to Learn with Sarah, Paula at Frosted Fingers and Sara at Sensibly Sara, each week linking up a post, new or old, that feature the theme Kids in the Kitchen. It doesn’t matter what you are doing as long as you are doing it together, enjoying it and learning something along the way.
