Fantastic Way to Help Children Make Healthier Food Choices

If you’re like me, you’re constantly scouring the food blogosphere for new recipes to experiment with or to add to your weekly meal rotation.  Nick Coffer, a stay-at-home dad of two adorable little ones, dishes up plenty of inspiration on his blog mydaddycooks.com.  His recipe box may be a little liberal with the sweet ideas, but I love how Nick describes his cooking experiences with his son, Archie“The time I spend together with Archie in the kitchen is true quality time. We talk, we laugh, we make a mess, we create, we argue, we break things, we sulk. But more than anything we just have fun.”  After all, that’s really what cooking for and your family should be about, right? Having fun and nourishing those you love in the mean time.

Children are also more likely to make healthy food choices later in life when they are introduced to the kitchen early on. Interestingly enough, Nick describes how they used Baby Led Weaning  to transition Archie to solid foods.  It seems to have created a culture around food that has brought a lot of joy to the Coffer house, and a second career for Nick.  If you want to know more about how to get your child involved in the kitchen, and learn some tasty recipes in the mean time, head over to mydaddycooks.com.
