With so many of us confined indoors, home cooking is on the rise. How do we make the most of this opportunity where there are more cooks in the kitchen - even little ones? How much cooking can kids do? What are the benefits of getting kids involved with meal prep? And where do you start if you yourself are not adept in the kitchen? 

We’ve cooked up a terrific episode with our parent guest this week, Claudine Boulstridge, who joins us from her home in rural Wales (UK). Claudine is the home recipe tester for world renowned chef, Yotam Ottolenghi. She’s also a mom of three and passionate about sharing her knowledge about healthy eating through her instagram account, @HealthyFamilyFoodIdeas. In this episode - right in time for the winter holidays - we talk about how to support kids in the kitchen, healthy eating, and how food can be a gateway to so much learning.
