Learning to Cook After Having a Baby

Do You Cook Now That You Have Kids?

Moms cooking for healthy eating habitsDecades ago, women were expected to be masters of domestic trades — like cooking and baking. Many women today don't know how to cook or choose not to on a regular basis. Then they have children and their lil ones arouse an awareness of health and nutrition that may have been dormant pre-baby. Moms want their kids to be healthy, eat right and exercise. And a growing number of studies show that healthy eating habits start at home.

Did you learn how to cook after you became a mom? Do you eat more meals at home now that you have children? Share your thoughts on children's nutrition and your favorite kid-friendly recipes in the comments below.

I had NO idea what I was doing in the kitchen before I had my daughter. I was never really interested growing up, and my fiance is a chef, so I didn't really have to worry about it. But when I became pregnant with her, I really wanted to make sure I could feed myself properly as well as feed her what she needs when she came along. I also wanted to make memories with her. I have really fond memories of baking and cooking with my mom, and I wanted to be able to share that with my girl. So, with my fiance's help, I learned to cook! I LOVE the Weelicious website for kid friendly recipes. So unique & fun!
