Cooking with children

(article, Culinate staff)

The blog Cheap Healthy Good recently rounded up suggestions from readers for cooking with and for children. The tips — which range from trapping them in a high chair while young to involving them with the actual cooking while older — are straightforward and reassuring. Our fave? A general refusal to cook the kids their own separate meals of chicken nuggets, fish fingers, and the like.

Meanwhile, food writer Anastacia Marx de Salcedo has been posting about her struggles to feed her kids good food on a budget. In desperation, she's also asked readers to provide suggestions in the comments section. So far, the suggestions have emphasized beans, rice, and pasta.
