Food matters. As families, we often base our days around food. In my house, the most-used room is the kitchen and it’s where all the action happens. When kids get the chance to learn how to make their own food, the benefits can be not only tasty, but also help their self-esteem and confidence grow and serve as an awesome bonding tool with their families.
