Cooking With Kids: Thanksgiving (+baby food)

Create a New Family Tradition: Tempt Your Kids into the Kitchen to Cook Thanksgiving Dinner with You. Thanksgiving is a time for food to bring families together, yet sometimes it can be stressful to have the little ones underfoot in the kitchen. Parent Earth’s new Thanksgiving video offers a solution – give kids a job to do!

“Cooking With Kids: Thanksgiving (plus baby food)” is hosted by dietitian and delectable home cook Amy Marlow who creates a Thanksgiving feast that the whole family will be thankful for.

Amy, with support from some enthusiastic parents and their little chefs, roasts a gorgeous, golden turkey breast; steams green beans to serve with caramelized onions and lemon zest; and prepares a crispy outside & tender inside medley of root vegetables with carrots, butternut squash, and parsnips. You’ll see how to include your baby in Thanksgiving dinner without doing any extra work – except pressing ‘blend’ or twirling the handle of the food mill a few times.

The Thanksgiving video was made in partnership with HAPPYBABY, Stonyfield Farms, and Care2. About HAPPYBABY: Launched on Mother’s Day 2006, HAPPYBABY® is the nation’s leading premium organic baby and toddler food brand. The company offers functional foods and optimal nutrition for all stages of infancy and toddlerhood.

Hi all!!!! Happy Thanksgiving!!!! :) :)
Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays, and every year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, as it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Not surprisingly, these stories are mostly about families, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. . .. – - -
