Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner

Independence isn't something we can teach. It isn't something we can do on the weekend. We need to live it. They absorb it and it becomes a part of them. Doing becomes a part of their being. It's not just about independence though, being involved in their own food preparation is also about self pride and confidence, empowerment, practical life skills and knowledge.

Learning to knead takes time and lots of practice. I'm demonstrating to Otis here.

Making pasta with children is time consuming and incredibly messy - but it's like magic, turning flour and eggs into one of their favourite foods.
