Cooking With Kids

We’ve been busy cooking our way through the alphabet with our Cooking With Kids A-Z series.  All of the kid-friendly recipes here are great for occupational therapy cooking activities. While these recipes for kids are simple meal prep ideas for occupational therapy sessions or specific goals, they double as a way to help kids with areas like attention or direction following. We love the learning and therapeutic benefits to cooking with kids so this series is a winner for us.  Try all of these recipes for tasty dishes that you can cook together as a family.
