Kids Thrive on Good Nutrition
Making less sugary homemade lemonade is a simple ‘cooking’ project for kids. It helps them enjoy being in the kitchen and enjoy drinking their very own recipe. Give your kids some kitchen experiences to teach them little-by-little how to enjoy food, ‘cook’ food and eat nutritiously. This recipe comes from my book, Need Help Mom? Busy Moms Making Food Fun for Healthy Eaters, now available as an ebook or paperback. It’s a resource you’ll want to buy and keep in your kitchen!
