Getting kids involved in cooking healthy meals

Children can be fussy little things at times, especially when it comes to food.

However with so much published on the good and bad foods and what they should and shouldn’t be eating, its always a constant battle parents are facing.

Wholegrain Goodness, a non-profit organisation for the promotion of healthy wholegrains recently undertook a survey that revealed that three in ten children think healthy eating is boring, a quarter think healthy food doesn’t taste nice and nearly two thirds don’t think it’s important to eat healthily.  Part of the issue may be the lack of experience children have of preparing food with only a quarter regularly help make meals, with twice as many boys than girls having never helped prepare a family meal. Despite this, more than one in three say they would like to cook more.

To show how much kids can enjoy cooking they let six loose in a professional kitchen with a wholegrain pizza recipe, the result is a lot of fun and the video is worth a watch

The video features a Wholegrain Goodness recipe: Vegetable & Salsa Verde Scone Pizza – with just 451 calories per serving, as well as two portions of wholegrain and three of your 5 A Day, over on their site you can also order a recipe booklet with surprisingly good, healthy recipes for the whole family.

Kayleigh and Ethan love being in the kitchen however at times I struggle to find food to eat that suits the whole family so I will be looking at the site for inspiration on getting the kids cooking.
I find they are much better however at eating food when they have had some input into what we are eating and even helping get things ready for dinner, its the same with foods like taco’s where they can select what they put in they love it a lot more.
Find all you need to know about wholegrain, oats and rapeseed oil, including recipes and nutritional information at – an independent, not-for-profit campaign launched by HGCA.
