At Traditional Cooking School, we’re all about empowering you to get your kids in the kitchen! And there’s no better place to start than snack time. Here’s an easy summer snack the kids can make on their own — no knives or heat involved. [by Lindsey Dietz]
Katie’s family’s meals were becoming boring, rushed, and often late. Life had gotten super busy. She’d stopped involving the kids in the kitchen. Her oldest son had been such a good little cook, yet his learning was stalled for four years. (Time flies, doesn’t it?) The mom and teacher in Katie joined forces to turn that ship around! Here’s how she did it… and how you can get free knife skills videos! [by Wardee Harmon]
Did the book Nourishing Traditions change your life like it did ours? Then you’ll be thrilled to hear there’s another book in the NT line… for kids! (And we’re giving away 3 copies!) I couldn’t be more thrilled to share it with — yes because of the gorgeous illustrations and beautiful kid-friendly layout — and also because it’s written by long-time Traditional Cooking School member and friend, Suzanne Gross.

When we began changing the way we ate, our son was definitely not on board with the changes. I became determined to break the habit of fussy eating in my children, and I was most determined to stop enabling them to be picky. Now, BOTH of my children are excellent eaters. It is possible to get picky eaters to pick Real Food! Here’s how. [by Lindsey Dietz]
What if our children could develop true, valuable, marketable talent even before they leave our homes — so when they are on their own, they are already passionate and successful experts in their fields? Jonathan Harris is committed to helping his children do just that. Also in today’s episode… the tip of the week! [by Wardee Harmon]
My son Kellen is guest posting in my place, sharing the findings from his recent science-fair project, for which he consulted the GNOWFGLINS Dehydrating eBook and followed lessons and instructions from the GNOWFGLINS Dehydrating eCourse. Kellen writes and sets out to test: “I hope to show with my science fair project that dehydrating the allergy-free foods I plan to carry on a backpacking trip will make my overall load significantly lighter.” [by Sonya Hemmings]
In our homeschool, one of my seven-year-old daughter’s favorite classes is Cooking Class. Yes, it is a big official name for an activity that most of the time is merely her helping me make dinner. But she feels important and we DO do special cooking projects as well. Last week, she and I sat down and made a list of what foods tend to grow in autumn. She then matched up her favorite recipes with that food list and we chose five to share with you. [by Kresha Faber]
Today I’m a guest at The Nourishing Home. Kelly invited me to talk about our new eBook, Real Food Kids. I’m touched that Kelly considers our eBook “a foundational resource for families who want to experience the joy and nourishment that comes from learning to work together as a team in the kitchen!” Want to hear more of my thoughts about the book, how it came to be, what it teaches, and more? Also in this post, a ridiculously low ($1.99) price thru Friday on an awesome resource that will help you transform SAD foods into whole food family favorites.
Today I’ve invited Jonathan Harris to share a free homeschooling and/or parenting resource with you. You’re going to love it! Jonathan is the author of the 10K to Talent blog (and husband to Renee Harris from MadeOn Hard Lotion). He homeschools their eight children, ages 14 and younger. Because of his desire to develop talent and life-long passion in his children early-on, he developed and practices an idea he calls 10k to Talent. The idea is that since world-class talent takes about 10,000 hours (10k) to develop, he wants to help each of his children identify and practice much of their talent development under his direction and before the age of 18 — so they’ll enter the adult world already very skilled at things they love to do!
