Getting the kids involved with the cooking is a great way of teaching them about nutrition, how to make healthier choices and it also encourages them to try a new dish – especially if they’ve made it themselves.
Potatoes are perfect for making delicious and nutritious meals, whether they’re baked, mashed or roasted, we have a recipe to suit everyone’s taste buds. We think it’s important to introduce cooking to kids in a fun and engaging way, so we have a variety of homemade recipes and activities that are guaranteed to get them excited.
