Let your child help plan dinner one night a week or month. Let them decide what to make and what they need to shop for. Then let them prepare their special meal (you will want to stay nearby and supervise and guide). At first you may get microwave hot dogs but as your child builds knowledge and confidence their menu will grow, and so will their skills and pride! The sight of the finished meal on the table will reward their planning and efforts. Serve extra helpings of praise!
