Does anyone know where I could get cooking lessons for me and my 7 year old?

I am wanting to help my child to eat better and I figured if she helped with the cooking she would eat it. We are both picky eaters and I was hoping this would help.

  • I saw recently on the Food Network about places where you can go in and make your own to-go meals according to recipes. Google the term: Make it yourself restaurant

  • also, i dont know if you have a Nintendo DS but they have those cooking games on there with actual recipes and such.

    our library here has some cooking activities in the summer a lot.

  • Thanks a lot for you answers. I actually do have a DS but I forgot about the game...I'll have to try it. I'm also gonna google the term from Food Network. Thanks a bunch!

  • What a great way to get your daughter involved in the process! Depending on where you live, there are some grocery stores that offer parent/child cooking lessons. They are great. My daughter used to love the American Girl Cook books. There are a couple kids cookbooks (including American Girl) on page 3 & 4
