Let the Kids Cook Dinner

Making healthy choices is not always easy when fast-food restaurants line the roads on the way home from school and work. Though it isn’t always the easiest choice to make, it can be a fun one. There are a lot of options for dinners that are kid-chef friendly, and here is one of them that you can try at home with the kiddos. 

What You’ll Need: 

Whole Grain Tortillas

Tomato Paste

Mozzarella Cheese

Your Favorite Pizza Toppings


Everyone constructs their favorite individual-sized pizza, or you can have the kids take orders and fix everyone’s pizza. Make it fun. Once assembled, pop the pizzas into a 350-degree oven until the cheese melts and is bubbly and brown. 

Nobody is asking mealtime to be something slaved over for hours and delivered to the dinner table by 6:00 p.m. sharp. Choose to make mealtime family time by having fun and getting everyone involved. The time we have with family at the end of a long day is so short, and it is important to make the most of that time together. The transition from mealtime to family time.
