Super Mom Bloggers - Cooking and Kids

Kids are often fussy eaters and when it comes to healthy eating, mothers surely struggle for new ideas to build this habit in kids. So to speak more about “Cooking & Kids”, today we have Simran Oberoi of “Ovenderful” who is sharing her special tips on healthy cooking and healthy baking for kids. Kids are very open to experimenting with their plate and exploring their taste buds unlike adults who have already developed strong preferences.    We as parents are often worried as junk foods proportion in the plate has increased over the years, so the sooner the children are driven towards healthy eating habits, the better it is for them. Simran shares her 3C’s with parents that they can follow to keep children away from junk foods:  • Creation: To find sources that give parents easy and quick access to recipes.  • Cultivation: Provide enough opportunity to kid to cultivate the habit of eating healthy. • Consistency: To remain consistent in your approach with all kinds of food.    She proposes this is the most ideal approach to keep kids away from junk food without putting any pressure on them that why they should not consume it. Creating an own plate full of nutrition and experimentation is what a child need.    Simran feels that our society is patriarchal in nature and hence lot of men and boys in the pandemic are struggling. Cooking is a very important life skill and should be taught to all kids irrespective of their gender. From young age, they should at least know the basics of what consists of a kitchen. Parents should involve their kids in kitchen work as a start and then slowly proceed to make them learn how to cook. “The sooner we start, the better” Simran adds.    She concludes stating that every task should be age-appropriate and one can start with baking with young kids of say 2 to 4 years old because it is more fun-oriented and helps improve motor skills. Slightly elder ones like 6 to 8 years can do more complex things like measuring etc. in the kitchen. Cooking thus acts as a great bonding exercise between kids and parents.    About her own blogging journey, Simran feels she has been very fortunate and her focus on cooking and healthy baking has been a great idea. She feels new bloggers like her can also bring great content to the audiences which they will thoroughly enjoy.      www.chimesradio.com  FB: https://www.facebook.com/chimesradio/  Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vrchimesradio/  Twitter: https://twitter.com/ChimesRadio Support the show: https://www.patreon.com/chimesradioSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.
