Many of us have fond memories of helping our parents or grandparents in the kitchen as children. This is how family recipes get passed on from generation to generation. Getting your children involved in the dinner plans is a great way to continue this tradition, spend time with your kids and teach them about nutrition all at the same time. It's also important that they learn some basic kitchen skills for later in life. Children love being involved in grown-up activities, so they'll likely enjoy helping you prepare dinner. But having a few tricks up your sleeve can't hurt, so try some of these kid-friendly kitchen tools to pique their interest in the culinary arts.
