Family Friendly Recipes – Kids in the Kitchen

By the age of five or six, your kids will form eating, exercise and sleep habits that can last a lifetime. The Guelph Family Health Study is testing ways for kids to learn healthy habits early – habits that can significantly lower your child’s risk for disease, now and in the future.

Parents in the Guelph Family Health Study have expressed an interest in kid-friendly and healthy recipes that they can serve to their families at home. Using crowd-sourced funding, the Guelph Family Health Study researchers responded to this request by creating this recipe book.

This collection of recipes was created just for kids! Getting your kids into the kitchen early can help you teach them how to choose healthy foods and is a great way to spend quality time together! Research shows that children who are involved in food preparation are more likely to try new foods. We hope you enjoy!
