Make a New Year's Resolution to change the way your family eats! Kitchen Kid supports "Family Kitchen:" a commitment to cook dinner with your family one night each week. If families who eat dinner together raise smarter, safer, and more secure kids, we can only imagine what happens when families cook together!
1. Join the Kitchen Resolution and resolve to call your family into the kitchen one night each week when soccer practice and PTO meetings won't have you eating in the car. (Don't have kids running around? Meals made together STILL taste better, so gather your friends instead!)
2. Earlier in the week, choose a menu theme (Greek? Comfort food? No-silverware-needed finger foods?) that will excite your family chefs, and plan and shop for the meal.
3. On the night of Family Kitchen, make sure each family member lends a hand. There are appropriate kitchen tasks for every family member, young and old.
4. Remember, this meal is much more about the process than the product. So take time, have fun, and enjoy your too-crowded kitchen -- and the meal you'll create together!
