Kids Cooking Resources

by The Blog for Family Dinner Team

We have had so much fun this month hosting blog posts and resources for getting kids involved in family dinner. Today we are sharing free resources specifically for getting kids in the kitchen to cook! We complied this list of websites and cookbooks with input from our readers, Facebook fans, and B4FD bloggers and contributors.
