Benefits of Home Cooking For the Family and For the Kids
Cooking at home is part of every family's routine.
Home cooking gives you and the family complete control over the ingredients in your recipes and the way you cook it. It is much easier to eat healthier at home than in a restaurant.
Food is cheaper when you buy it and cook it at home rather than buying take-out or eating in a restaurant.
Menus can be planned that include foods from all the food groups.
You can choose how much salt, fat and processed foods you put in your meal.
Foods can be easily modified to accommodate different family member's tastes.
You can avoid having your children eat foods that contain chemicals and additives that are found in some foods from restaurants.
You can control portions easier at home. Eating out is also considered a major cause of obesity in America, according to a recent report by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration
It is perfect family time as everyone can take turns planning and helping with meals
