Great Chicago Italian
Cooking for Kids



Unlike the picture suggests, this section is Italian cooking for kids, not cooking your kids.
Everyone knows the difficulty in getting your children to eat. One of the best way to get them to eat is by getting them involved in the kitchen. Kids love to eat what they make.

Even after you teach them everything you know, you can rest assure that when they get older they'll still be coming over for dinner.

Always make sure the kitchen is safe for the little ones. They should never get near the stove or use sharp utensils. There will still be plenty of things for them to do.

Though there is a limited variety of Italian food kids will eat, if you start them off young you shouldn't have a problem getting them to eat when they're older.

Normally when cooking for my kids I'll limit the portions and limit the spices. Kids taste buds need time to develop so I never spice up a recipe. The simpler the better.

I started cooking for myself when I was around ten years old. Mom and Dad both worked so either I learned to cook or starve. Those were the good old days. Needless to say I came up with some of the strangest concoctions you could imagine. I've gotten much better since then.

It's a wonderful experience cooking with the kids and you'll be creating memories that will last a lifetime. Cooking for kids can bring you much satisfaction.

Here a some of my kid's favorite recipes. Have fun and enjoy.
