This is a Run Lift Mom podcast interview about how to involve your kids in the kitchen with Kelsie Ruoff, founder of Perennial Mom Squad.
In this episode, we discuss modeling healthy behavior in the kitchen and how Kelsie had family eating habits modeled for her, such as importance of dinner together at the table (3:00) during her childhood.
As a Mom of 2 girls, she has passed the same culture down while also involving her girls in the preparation and cooking of their family meals (4:00).
Kelsie offers several tactical tips about how to involve kids in the kitchen in a safe but participatory way (6:30), including kid focused cookbooks, jobs for little hands, and incorporating learning into food and meal prep (8:00).
Who is Kelsie?
In her words: “I’m a mom to two strong-willed girls, wife to a Navy Veteran, dog mom to a sweet rescue pup, and plant mom to about 60 houseplants. I love all things planners, notebooks, calendars, post-it notes and Sharpies. I enjoy Netflix binges, fantasy novels, and long walks in Costco. For the past four years I was very involved in the fashion industry, even owning my own online boutique!
When COVID-19 hit everything changed, and life took me in a new direction. I had to dig deep to figure out what I was truly passionate about…to figure out what value I could bring to the women in my life. Now, I’m focused on using my Type-A, obsessive, list loving personality to help moms conquer their chaos. My mission is to help busy stay-at-home moms reclaim their time and energy with organization techniques and time saving routines.
When you join my community you can anticipate a lot of: laughs, love and support. Together we will survive motherhood, one meltdown at a time.”
