Benefits of Cooking with Kids

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

It might get messy, but the benefits of getting your kids hands on in the kitchen, definitely outweigh the post-clean up operation.

From an early age my husband and I have both encouraged our children to help out in our kitchen. As Head of Baking in our household, I started making buns and biscuits with my kids when they were toddlers and as they have grown older my husband has encouraged them to help him wash the vegetables at dinner time.

As each year has gone by we have given them new tasks to complete and new recipes to try in the kitchen. Things haven’t always run smoothly, but our kids are keen to try most foods now and having them help in the kitchen has been a big factor in this.

We have teamed up with some of our favourite Kids Recipe Bloggers, to bring you lots of new recipe ideas below to try with your own kids in your kitchen.
