The Kids' Table: Learn How to Cook Easy Lasagnas with Your Kids

Want your kids to love what you're making for dinner? Get them involved in the kitchen—it's fun, educational and will make them excited about what's on their plates. In our exclusive video, Cricket Azima, author of Everybody Eats Lunch and founder of The Creative Kitchen, demonstrates easy individual mini lasagnas that lets the kids customize their own ingredients.

Don't forget to write names on each lasagna tin with a marker before baking so the right cook gets his own creation back, and serve them straight out of their pans for easy clean up. You can freeze larger pans of lasagna, then defrost and bake on a day when you're short on time or don't feel like cooking.

While you're cooking with your kids, share some fun facts. Show the kids how Italy (home of the lasagna) is shaped like a boot. Or chat with children about the tomato; explain how and why it’s a fruit (yet eaten like a vegetable), how it’s part of the “nightshade” family (along with eggplants, potatoes and more), and that it grows on a vine. Plus, tomatoes are high in lycopene, a strong antioxidant, which is especially good for the heart.
