Cooking with kids is a fun way for children to learn about nutrition, math, science and more! Young children love to help in the kitchen and though it usually require twice as much time and energy to cook something with young children, as it takes just to cook it yourself, it will help to guarantee that your children are comfortable in the kitchen when they are adults.
Last week’s Waldorf inspired lesson plan called for making a seasonal recipe with apples. I had hoped to have us try several recipes, but life got in the way and we only made one. We made an apple spice cake . Not only was it very yummy, it was a really good recipe to make with Sola. At the age of five, she was able to use her wavy food chopper to cut up the apples (though the cake was a bit more chunky than I would have made by myself),whisk the dry ingredients together,
and even crack the eggs (I didn’t get a picture of this, since I was so paranoid about her getting raw egg all over the kitchen or herself). Of course, Sola was especially good at eating the cake.
