Part 2 of 3: How to get Kids Involved at Home – Tech Edition!

We’re in this together.

Everyone is feeling the ripple effects of school/daycare closures among many other cancellations and postponed events. To say that people are overwhelmed might be an understatement.

Nüton wants to help families get through this using the power of food. Exploring food and cooking is not only a good activity for long days spent at home, but it’s also a great opportunity to teach kids about science and math…and so much more!

To help you lighten things up, we will be sending you a series of our top tips on getting kids involved in the kitchen, while learning and having fun!

Best part? You don’t need anything fancy to get started. Please forward this to any parents or caregivers who would find this helpful!
