Tips for Cooking With Kids
- Safety is paramount! Make sure that there is always an adult present when children are cooking.
- Keep it clean! Wash your hands, and teach your children to wash their hands on a regular basis when cooking -- before they start, after they’ve been to the bathroom, if they sneeze -- you know the drill!
- Choose age appropriate recipes! You want cooking to be fun, not frustrating!
- Review your recipes beforehand and make sure you have all the ingredients before you start!
- Preparation is key! Line up all your ingredients and utensils on the counter before your start. That way you can focus on the task at hand (and keep an eye on the kids at all times)
- Demonstrate & explain the ingredients and the utensils you are using -- but keep it fun and age appropriate.
- Encourage the “clean as you go” philosophy. You’ll be glad you did when they become teenagers.
- Most of all, have fun! Let the kids touch, taste and experiment -- it’s the best way to learn!
