Kids In the Kitchen – A Roundup Of Recipes To Get Your Kids Cookin!

Here at Inner Child Food, we are mamas who love to involve our children in the process of cooking and baking. We have all found it has a multitude of benefits, and some of those include:

  • Making memories together and bonding time
  • Teaching them how to share
  • Learning how to work in a group and as a team
  • Developing mathematical skills
  • Giving them an appreciation for food and flavor, and
  • Simply teaching them how to make their own meals so they can one day cook for themselves and someday even you!

May it inspire you to involve your children in an everyday task to make memories and develop skills that will go way beyond the spatula and pan.

    Thank you so much for the list. Love this and was looking for some fresh recipes to add to my dwindling list. Cooking with my 3 year old is such a special experience. I just got him a new apron from which only enhances the experience because he feels so official. THANKS!!!
