Kids enjoy working with new and different ingredients, expanding their sense of taste and smell alike.
It is unrealistic to feed a child peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pizza, and chicken nuggets and expect them to have an appreciation for international cuisine.
Even for the child whose palate is not as modest, failing to cultivate a child's kitchen and garden diminishes their consciousness of Epicurean physics.
"The beginning and root of all good is the pleasure of the stomach; even wisdom and culture must be referred to this."
Some of the sweetest pleasures in life come from feasting, or in our kids' case, noshing on a tasty treat.
