Chinese New Year will be celebrated on January 31 this year. Chinese dishes are kid-friendly with ingredients that children enjoy, and interesting to prepare with choices of noodles, beef and fish, and yummy desserts. Teens can be fussy eaters, and usually want to eat what their peers eat. Chinese dishes offer a variety of textures, colors, and shapes to intrigue children to investigate different ingredients in cooking. Involving teens in shopping for ingredients is also a great way to interest them in cooking and trying their dishes that they prepare.
