Healthy House

“When my daughter Jessica was in the 3rd grade, she had an extra-credit assignment dealing with nutrition,” says Mary Wollensak of Brookfield, Wisconsin. “While I was combing through cookbooks, Jessica came up with this! Everyone at school loved it, and since then, she's been eager to help in the kitchen and experiment with new recipes.”

    this looks like a wonderful kitchen/food experience I can share with my grandchildren - and get them to eat it too! I love it when people come up with things that kids can actually DO - and have FUN with all on their own. Great job!!

    Hate to say it, but not very appetizing, although the items by themselves seem nutritional. I am glad though for any young one to take an interest in cooking, so GL.

    Letting children help in the kitchen is a great way to get them involved in choosing to eat more nutritious foods. Good for you!!
