Kids Cook! Get your kids involved in the kitchen by having them help out with this recipe. Here’s what they can do!* If you're using kernels from the cob, show kids how to hold the cob to cut the kernels off. Zucchini and peppers they can chop with a kid-friendly knife. And after, measure out the edamame and herbs. What a help!

Dietitian's Tip: If you not sure if a new vegetable recipe will go over well with your child consider calling them into the kitchen to help make it. As they become more familiar with new foods they will be more likely to try them. Don't consider it a total flop if they don't try it. It's all about baby steps.
