As we welcome the coming June holidays, it is a fantastic opportunity to introduce your little ones to the exciting world of cooking. One delicious and nutritious recipe to kick-start this culinary journey is the Savoury Barley Risotto, recommended by Kinderland’s in-house nutritionist.
This dish not only tantalises taste buds but also teaches your child about the importance of healthy eating and how to create delightful meals from simple ingredients.
Savoury Barley Risotto offers more than just a tasty meal. It is a wonderful chance to make use of leftover barley from making a barley drink. This smart use of leftovers helps our children understand the importance of preventing food wastage, a lesson that is just as valuable as the nutritional benefits.
Speaking of nutrition, barley is an excellent ingredient in children’s diets. As a whole grain, it is high in fibre, contributing to a healthy digestive system. Its rich, nut-like flavour, chewy texture, and pasta-like consistency make it incredibly appealing to young taste buds.
So, this June holidays, involve your children in the kitchen to whip up this delightful dish. It is a culinary adventure that helps them explore the joy of cooking and understand the significance of healthy eating – truly an experience they will cherish and learn from. Happy cooking, and enjoy the holidays!
