Vegetarian Cooking for Kids During Holidays

It is often a challenge for mothers to find activities for kids during holdays. I find Cooking as the best activity for kids as it teaches them skills for rest of their lives.

Start off by giving them small kids-friendly cooking tasks i.e., washing vegetables, kneading the dough with hands etc. This will give them a feel for what goes into their food. Start off with easy vegetarian recipes. Let them see each of the ingredients and tell them about the goodness in each of he ingredients. You will be surprised how they will find it interesting and will go talk about their healthy cooking experience with their friends.

I have tried this easy vegan recipe with my kids several times and they love it each and  every time.
