What We Ate Wednesday + Kid Made Pizza!

Kids in the Kitchen #6 – Grain, Nut, Soy and Dairy-free Heathy Bites

Kids in the Kitchen #6 – Grain, Nut, Soy and Dairy-free Heathy Bites

Hey there!

I promise I didn’t forget about Kid’s in the Kitchen.  We just haven’t done a lot of cooking together lately for some reason.  The Love Nugget is getting more into playing with legos, transformers and out in the dirt than spending time with me in the kitchen.  Sniff, sniff…  The joys of boys right!?!

However, the other day I got him to help me make a nut-free, grain-free and dairy-free snack that he could safely take with him to school.  Like most schools these days, his is a nut-free zone.  So even though we love using them in our snacks for a good source of protein and healthy fats, we have to come up with other options for school snacks.   Which is okay because I like to get creative!

So here’s our latest Kid’s in the Kitchen feature 🙂

First things first, before bringing your child into the kitchen to help, make sure your counters, etc are safe.  No knives, sharp objects, or things that they can injure themselves with.  Obviously make sure they thoroughly wash their hands and have a safe stool to stand on.  We break that last rule a little and often use one of our bar stools but would love to have one of these for our kitchen adventures some day!

Now, once your kitchen is safe and your kids are clean, apron on and ready to go, it’s time to start the fun!

Kids in the Kitchen #4 – Ants on a Log

Kids in the Kitchen #4 – Ants on a Log

Hey there!

I’m a little behind on these Kids in the Kitchen posts just because we’ve been so busy lately!  That and The Love Nugget has been more interested in playing outside than being in the kitchen.

He’s such an outdoorsy boy!

Today’s Kids in the Kitchen is one that is simple and probably one you’ve made before.  If you haven’t though, it’s a great way to get your kids to eat celery and sneak in some healthy fat from nut butter 🙂

Kids in the Kitchen #3 – Fruit “Swizzlebobs” AKA Shish kabobs

Making food fun always makes it more desirable to kids.  And what’s not fun about shish kabobs?

Food on a stick!?!  Fun right?

So of course the idea of making fruit shish kabobs or Sizzlebobs as The Love Nugget likes to call them was a huge hit!

Which is our next kid friendly recipe for my Kid’s in the Kitchen segment!

Kids in the Kitchen #1 – Trail Mix

Kids in the Kitchen #1 – Trail Mix

When I was little I have fond memories of being in the kitchen with my family. From licking the batter off the spoon when making cake with my grandma to making monster toast with my mom there was a lot of time spent in the kitchen that I believe helped shape my healthy living goals when it comes to my family now.That and my education background motivates me to encourage other parents to allow their kids to help in the kitchen.

Which is why I’m starting a new series here on the blog called,
