Many of us grew up in “bubble wrapped” households. We were taught to stay out of the kitchen, let mom do the chores, and that we were “too young” to take on responsibility.
Today’s guest, Katie Kimball, is dismantling that misperception by bringing kids into the kitchen and teaching them how to cook, at as young as 3! Katia shares her strategies to get kids cooking young, the sensory benefits, and the responsibility it helps persist.
