Kids a Cookin:  Step-by-step videos and information for preparing nutritious, delicious, but most of all, fun recipes.  These recipes are not only simple to prepare and affordable, but are an excellent way to share the joys of cooking with your kids (Source: K-State Research and Extension's Family Nutrition Program).

Choking Hazards: Children and infants do not grind or chew their food well and may attempt to swallow food whole. Large pieces of food easily can lodge in the throat and result in choking. For infants to age 1, cut up foods into small pieces no larger than 1/4 inch. Toddlers and preschoolers generally can eat foods cut in pieces no larger than 1/2 inch (Source: North Dakota Extension).
