Reading with parents helps young children learn about the world around them, as well as bond with the parent reading with them. Reading books about nutrition and healthy eating allows both children and parents to learn not only about the main topics, but also new vocabulary, such as cooking words, cooking equipment labels, nutrition words and healthy eating terms, etc.
Cooking and eating together offers children a way to learn important pre-kindergarten skills, including math, science, physical development, health and nutrition, literacy development, social development and creative arts, as well as to try new nutritious foods. Furthermore, parents can learn about good nutrition, positive feeding practices and positive parent-child interaction skills by cooking and eating with their children.
As a child’s first teachers, parents can play an important role in supporting their child’s healthy development and learning.  Little Books and Little Cooks is a 7-week parenting education workshop for children 3 - 5 years old and the adults who are caring for them.
