My oldest daughter, Leilah absolutely LOVES cooking. Whether it's helping me in the kitchen, or pretending in her own kitchen with play food, she is a little chef. I love her interest in cooking and always wanting to be involved, so I try to find ways to let her help and get a little messy along the way.
For quite some time, Leilah has been an extremely picky eater. I know that a majority of kids go through this at some point in their lives. It is a part of becoming more independent and wanting to be in control. I am totally all for her trying out her independence and learning to do things on her own. But, when it comes to her having bad eating habits, I want to do do whatever I can to prevent it.
