Cooking and Eating with Children: A Way to Learn.
McAfee, Oralie; And Others
This pamphlet describes ways for children and caregivers to plan, cook, and eat together, blending practical health suggestions with sound educational philosophy. The ideas and concepts children can learn from cooking are outlined (e.g. motor skills, language, mathematics, executive abilities, etc.), and the importance of eating with children, from snacktime to a family-style school lunch, is discussed. Child-tested recipes in a 16-page section range from making simple non-cook applesauces with 3-year-olds, to ethnic recipes such as Indian fry bread and Hawaiian pudding for older children to try.
