My son Sawyer has taken an interest, and loves watching me cook in the kitchen. The other night we made our Whole30 dinner a family activity. Sawyer and I started out by picking herbs from our garden. He wanted his hand in every step, so I let him help me as much as possible! We used a mortar and pestle technique to grind the herbs and he helped me pulse them in the blender. Getting the whole family in the kitchen serves several purposes. Most importantly it is a great way for us to connect as a family. First, we are present with each other. Second, we are actively teaching our son healthy eating habits from a very young age. As he learns how to cook, he will expand his options for healthy, wholesome eating. We have also found that when he dresses like a knight he performs better in the kitchen. ;-)
