51 Beginner Recipes for Tweens

From DIY Fruit Rollups to Campfire-Baked Bananas

— July 22, 2015 — Life-Stages
Cooking is hard, but these beginner recipes were seemingly designed with tweens in mind. Thanks to the Internet age, there are countless resources that make learning to cook step by step an easier process to tackle. In tackling such culinary challenges at a young age, tweens gain valuable insight into treating food as fuel.

Given the current cultural climate around healthful food and beverage consumption, there are plenty of reasons why teaching kids to cook at an early age will translate into healthier eating habits later. In understanding the ingredients that are involved in making any dish, whether it is dessert or an entree, one is likely to have a greater grasp on the value of quality, well-sourced alternatives that support health and development.
