Why you should cook with your kids

This is one of the most popular TED talks, and it’s about cooking with kids. It’s not just fun – it’s an important part of educating them about where food comes from, good healthy habits, and building a good relationship with their meals and themselves.

We also love this post, which lists further benefits of cooking with kids, and some fantastic recipes. Great recipes over here, too.

One of our favourite things to cook at Elements is a delicious lunch of roasted vegetables.

Choose fresh produce, depending on the season. Our students love everything from potatoes and broccoli with cheese, to a mix of root vegetables.

The children can help wash the vegetables, and chop them. 

Mix olive oil, herbs and salt in.

Offer a taste of the herbs to the kids, to allow them to understand flavours. 

Roast in the oven until the vegetables are tender. Serve with some bread on the side, if you like.

Have a wonderful weekend and please do visit our Facebook page, to share your own favourite family meals. Also – do you follow us on Instagram? We hope you do!
