  • Show your preschooler that they can contribute to the family without needing help on every move.
  • Learn the trick to help tiny hands know the difference between a teaspoon and a tablespoon – with no mistakes!
  • Give your kiddos a chance to feel proud that they can help out – when they’re actually still motivated to do it!
  • Zero junk food – teach kids NOW that they can eat healthy, not “kid food,” sugary sweets, or time-consuming, cutesy shapes.
  • Gluten-free and Paleo adaptable, including a surprising bread-free sandwich idea – no junky carbs for your little one’s brain!

My 5-year-old son wanted a PB&J for lunch today. I was about to (reluctantly) stop what I was working on to make it for him when I remembered what he learned in Kids Cook Real Food and said, “Actually, you can make it yourself, because it’s all spreading and you learned spreading in your class.” He was delighted with that idea, I got out the materials, and he went to work.

He was super happy and couldn’t wait to tell his kindergarten teacher that he made his own sandwich for lunch.

Thanks for empowering my son!
