Cooking with your kids isn’t just fun: it’s educational! The more involved kids get, the more they learn. You can even take it a step further and teach them about where food comes from. Going to a U-Pick farm can be a fun family activity. Afterwards, head home and use your fresh fruit or veggies to serve up a delicious meal!
In this teaser for a new show, Kids Cooking, host Camille and some friends make blueberry pancakes together- after picking the fruit themselves!
