Growing up on a farm, then working in the agriculture industry for a number of years, I have a closer connection to my food
than most Canadians. Now living in a small farming community, I'm lucky enough to know the people that grow the food that feeds my family. And, as a stay-at-home mom, the kitchen is where I spend most of my day — and if I'm not cooking, I'm cleaning. If I'm in the kitchen
, that's also where my children end up
too. As soon as they were old enough, I had my kids pitch in
. Here's how I got my kids cooking (and kept my sanity).
