Survival Skills 101: Teaching Kids Kitchen Confidence

Survival Skills 101: Teaching Kids Kitchen Confidence
Are your kids picky eaters? Do they fuss over whatever mommy makes and what is placed on the table? Food is the fuel that keeps us all running high and helps us thrive. Getting them more involved and hands-on is the best survival skill you can teach them.
In this episode, I talked to Katie Kimball who is the CEO and founder of Kitchen Stewardship. In 2016 she created the #1 bestselling online kids cooking course, Kids Cook Real Food, helping thousands of families around the world learn to cook. A mom of 4 kids from Michigan, she is also a Certified Stress Mastery Educator, a member of the American Institute of Stress and trained speaker through Bo Eason’s Personal Story Power. Welcome back for another awesome episode of Recipes for Your Best Life!
We’ll discuss
1. What kids think of nutrition
2. The Pandemic – really an opportunity to educate your kids
3. How to teach your kids to cook
“The more exposure you have to the food, the closer you’ll get to eating it!”
– Katie Kimball, founder and CEO of Kitchen Stewardship
