Apple ‘N Peanut Butter Bread Pudding

 

School is out, or almost out for most of us and with summer time here, if your house is anything like mine……you often here the words…. “I’m boooooored” !

Using the the less stressful time of summer is a great time to let your kids get involved in the daily meal preparation. It can quickly become an opportunity for family fun.  Kids can learn more about food, cooking, and nutrition.  When they get the chance to help out in the kitchen they are more likely to eat something they have helped  prepare

Sometimes it may be as simple as just help getting dinner on the table!

Kid Friendly Dinner Prepping

Kid Friendly:  Dinner Prepping Make dinner prep easier by teaching your child how to set the table.  5 years old is a great age to start teaching them this basic chore.

  • Tell them how important their “job” is
  • Set all of the supplies out on the counter for them (save sharp knives for the adults to put out)
  • print out table setting place mats to use as a guide

 

Enlist their help in clean up AFTER dinner as well.

Little ones can:

  • unload the dishwasher
  • dry non breakables
  • clear off the table
  • wipe off table

Older children can:

  • rinse and load dishwasher
  • put leftovers away
  • clear off the table
  • wipe off table
  • take out garbage

Discover the value of including your children in your kitchen time!……and all the FREE help you can get! lol

Reward their efforts with a scrumptious dessert!

Traditional bread pudding gets a new twist by adding apples and peanut butter for a delicious surprise.

Do your kids help with meal prep or clean up? Mine have from a young age, they set the table every night and help clear the table and do the dishes.   I like the dishes done as soon as dinner is over, I don’t like them to sit for later.
