Cooking with kids
Throw back Thursday – kids growing up in the kitchen
Having kids in the kitchen is natural for our family – in fact, sometimes the older kids cook full meals for the family – from chicken legs and turkey burgers to sweet potatoes. and soup
All four of the kids use knives and the gas stove without direct supervision.
BUT: How did the kids become so active in the kitchen?
We started when they were young...
The kids learned about spices and how to make scrambled eggs.
As the kids got older, I gave them more and more opportunities and freedom in the kitchen.
They were given lessons, safety rules, guidance… and food.
Cutting onions (and discovering that they make your eyes water)
…and yes we used to have a punching bag in the kitchen! LOL!
Taking the kids to local markets and the grocery store.
Elijah is gluten free and so it’s important he knows how to cook for himself…
