Teaching kids’ stuff in the kitchen is a great activity. Realistically it is a necessary life skill, so getting them comfortable with smaller jobs in the kitchen is a great start. Obviously, jobs need to be age appropriate & we aren’t talking gourmet chef kinda stuff.
Help out regularly with:
💡 Washing fruit and vege before eating
💡 Peeling vegetables
💡 Cutting up the fruit & vege
💡 Grating any cheese, or vegetables
💡 Cracking an egg & whisking
💡 Of course, setting the table
Even set aside an afternoon regularly, for bigger things or simple recipes
💡 Reading recipes & using measuring spoons & cups
💡 Scrambled eggs, add in some chopped vege THINK mushrooms, parsley, tomatoes & fetta
💡 Roast some vege. 👉 Aim for LOs (leftovers) so you can have either a skillet brekky tomorrow morning or frittata tomorrow night
💡 Spag bog is a great starter dish, add in some grated vege, maybe some lentils or beans. 👉 Remember to make it a big batch so you can freeze some!
Try out your fav easy recipe or look for an option online. Kids love to help & get creative; it may inspire them to try some new foods. Plus, who knows you may have a budding chef, who wants to do more cooking! It makes some fantastic memories (although there may be a bit of mess at the time).
