Day to Day

Making the most out of everyday moments

During Mealtime

If you do anything for your child that he COULD do on his own, you've kept him from growing.

Cooking and Mealtime

Cooking with adults builds a child's self-esteem and independence.

Here's some cooking so simple even a toddler can help!

Talk about the difference that healthy food makes for their growing bodies.

If you're making a homemade pizza, let your baby smell the oregano and touch the mushrooms. You might want to say, "MMM. This is a spice called oregano." "Feel how slippery this mushroom is!"


Why To?

When they see adults cooking, children get the idea that it's an important job. Then, when they get to help cook, children feel POWERFUL!


 At Before5, we are passionate about helping you understand how your child grows and develops – especially in the first five years, which is when the really important learning happens.
