Letting Kids Help With: Corn

I'm told my son eats corn when it's on the menu at his daycare. But I'm admittedly a little bit of a vegetable snob. So, I figured if he likes canned corn, wouldn't he love fresh corn on the cob ... grilled? I mean, does it get any better?

Then, I figured he should help.

Watching a toddler try to shuck corn is pretty awesome.

 "Helping" with corn ... until they're old enough to help with corn.

As kiddos get older, they'll be more helpful. But until they're helpful, they can be distracted and occupied while you make the rest of the meal. We call this a win-win.
