Home cooking is the best way to guarantee healthy nutrition for the family, bringing goodness, vitality, and fun to the family table. Large industrial food manufacturers, fast-food chains, and beverage companies are feeding families chemicals, food additives, hormones, dyes, and excessive amounts of sugar, salt, and fat. Instead, kids can experience home cooking, using real food that is local, organic, and in season. Growing a backyard garden, kids eat organic, ripe, fresh picked fruit and veggies, excited to try what they have grown. With garden to table menus, kids can help plan and prepare meals from scratch, building loving relationships cooking with family. Dishes made from scratch are much less expensive. How kids experience food in their homes and environment, changes their bodies and metabolic process. Kids can set the table and add flowers, fruit, or nuts as a centerpiece. Pediatricians recommend that families eat together and create a relaxing environment for open communication. The delicious smells and colorful presentation of food from the garden entice the whole family to come to the table. Home cooking is a life changing recipe for health and happiness that brings the family together and creates new healthy eating habits.
