One of the greatest joys of my kitchen is watching my kids devour and truly enjoy real, nourishing food, especially when it’s not particularly kid-friendly in most people’s eyes.
I’m proud of them for being counter-cultural.
The second best kitchen moments in the Kimball household?
Successfully making fun food that looks like other kids’ food but is devoid of synthetics and yucky ingredients and watching my kids enjoy that.
It’s good for them to feel normal sometimes, too.
The first time I tried this technique, I thought I must have missed a step.
Not because it didn’t work, but because it was SO easy that I kind of can’t believe people pay for premixed fruity gelatin in boxes. That jiggly sugar water with artificial flavors and colors is as close to candy as anything else. No thank you!
These homemade snacks are not only fun but healthy. Gelatin is a huge boost for hair, skin, nail, and joint health – you won’t get that in a box of artificial powder. 😉
This easy homemade gelatin recipe is in the beginner level of my Kids Cook Real Food course. That’s right, beginner! It’s so easy preschoolers can make it! (With a little help from mom or an older sibling with the stove portion of course!)
