Meatloaf Milano

Recipe Remixes | March 25, 2015 | By

0224 Meatloaf Milano _Cupcakes_Did you know that children who participate in meal preparation with their mother or father tend to have better eating habits than those who don’t? Kids who help prepare their families’ meals tend to eat more fruits, vegetables and dietary fiber and are more willing to try new foods.

This month, we want to help you create opportunities to get your kids involved in the kitchen. Younger children can help with rinsing fruits and vegetables, tearing lettuce for a salad and cutting soft foods with a butter knife. Older kids can assist in creating these twists on our April menu, such as turning Meatloaf Milano into cupcakes.
