There really is no exact information on who invented the kitchen table. Some sources say that Egyptians were those who created the first table for the kitchen. It was said that they made platforms which would let them place their food away from the floor, although, these claims are unsubstantiated. Even though nobody exactly knows who invented it, we know that they also have their own stories as this is the most common place for family members to talk together and spend some time over a good meal. At some other times, family members may have different tasks to do but when they eat at the kitchen table, they simply enjoy their meal. The kitchen table is also a good place for children to do their homework.
As parents, raising healthy kids is a top priority for all of us. We do not want it to be a temporary thing either. My personal mission is to raise lifelong healthy eaters. I try to move beyond the idea of "eat what is on your plate because I said so" and try to develop a basic, kid-friendly understanding of the importance of healthy eating. I believe that the more we talk about nutrients, the importance of "eating the rainbow", why real food is more beneficial for our bodies and minds than processed food, as well as other things, the more likely my kids become flourishing, healthy kids now and flourishing, healthy adults in the future. One of the best places to help healthy kids thrive in the way I am describing is in the kitchen. Bring them right into the heart and soul of the house! Let them watch, let them observe, let them question.
However, by paying attention to our own health and safety around the home and particularly in the kitchen, a lot of the minor accidents that happen in the home can be avoided, if you take care and bear a few basic facts in mind. First look at the layout of your kitchen and consider ways that you could simplify things. This will involve taking a general overview as to the space itself. While doing this, look for any potential hazards which may arise such as obstructions or tripping hazards. Ensure that your floor covering is not wet and wipe up any spills straight away. If you have rugs make sure that they have a non-slip surface to avoid trips and falls. Once these are identified, you can take steps to make things safer and improve the safety of your kitchen.
Pottery casserole dishes, plates and crockery look good placed on counter tops or in open cabinets. These add a country look to your kitchen. If you do not have any pottery pieces in your home you will be surprised at what you can pick up for pennies at thrift stores for some good pottery pieces. Displaying some of your cookbooks is also a good way of decorating your kitchen cheaply. You could have one open on a book stand on your counter top or have them arranged standing up in one group going graduating from tallest to smallest. The idea here is to look around your home and use items you already own to create a new look in your kitchen. If you have a few dollars to spare you can go look in some thrift stores for some cheap items that can give your kitchen a new look without it costing you much at all.
