Get kids involved in putting together this kid-friendly, healthy meal.
I truly believe that every family should have a garden to care for. Even a small container garden on a windowsill can help kids understand where food comes from. Plus you get to enjoy the harvest together! I’ve seen firsthand how an anti-vegetable child can show interest in snap peas simply because she grew them herself.
Two of our family favorites to grow in the garden are tomatoes and basil. Even kids who claim they don’t like tomatoes or anything green will probably take a liking to this easy recipe. After all, most kids love pasta and cheese!
I love getting my kids involved in the kitchen and aside from doing the dishes, they love helping me. Many of our dishes involve a lot of chopping and I’m not quite ready to let my 9-year-old take on that part of the food preparation. For this recipe, the only thing that requires a knife is chopping tomatoes (which is my job), so it’s very kid-friendly.
It’s the perfect recipe for kids to help assemble. It’s garden-to-table at its best!
