What Kids Need To Know

Each day this week I plan on sharing a portion of an article that I had read in an old magazine. It's a page that I had torn out, so I cannot even give credit where it is deserved, but I thought it might come in handy for you as well.

Today's Topic:
FOOD
  • use microwave
  • plan and shop for a healthy diet
  • read nutrition labels and know what's good and what's not
  • prepare, serve and store food to avoid spoilage
  • cook a well-balanced meal
  • know which kitchen tools and equipment to use for which tasks

I like that the article states that when your tween or teen learns a new skill, you should pat yourself on the back, too...for your good parenting and because you'll have fewer things on your to-do list!
