Who else has fond memories of cooking with their Grandma or Mum as a child? Are there any recipes that you have passed down to your own children?
Cooking with kids is a messy, fun and chaotic event, but it can be a great way to get them on the path of eating healthily and enjoying food. Encourage little ones to practice their skills with easy peasy recipes that they can really get involved in try cookie decorating, pizza making or ice lolly molds for bright colorful results.
You can also teach your children basic skills everyday, like mashing potatoes or peeling fruit, don’t worry about the mess, just focus on safely teaching them these essential techniques. Of course they can help clean up after! Make sure you give yourself plenty of time and space too.
The kitchen is a great place for kids to learn, providing they are supervised by an adult, there are many things we take for granted that can provide fascinating for children.So what gets your kids excited in the kitchen?
