The Little Potato Company Helps Parents and Kids Engage in the Kitchen!

The Little Potato Company specializes in little creamer potatoes which are grown to be naturally buttery tasting, loaded with nutrition and easy to prepare. Offering diverse, colourful and fun varieties the company partners with excellent growers across North America to ensure a year-round supply of these “little potatoes with big personality”!

Recently, the Little Potato Company has launched a new website featuring The Little Chef Program, offering recipes and tips to help parents and kids spend time together cooking, having fun and learning new skills. When parents engage kids in the kitchen, not only will they learn to cook, but they’ll also learn math, nutrition, where food comes from, planning, social skills, family food traditions and more.

The program includes Little Chef Approved recipes, age-appropriate tasks for kids 5 to 7, 8 to 10, and 11 to 13 year olds, and an overview of the important skills they’ll learn as they progress in the kitchen. These recipes are popular not only with kids but with adults also!

Here is our favourite recipe because it’s not only an easy one-pan breakfast but can be a fun change-up for lunch or dinner.
