Have your children ever asked you if you needed any help in the kitchen? Have you thought that kitchen is too dangerous for them or that it is too early? It won’t be if you have the right recipes and the right kitchen tools. There are some foods which are fun and easy to make. Your children will enjoy helping you, just be sure not to give them anything they can hurt themselves with. The following 5 recipes are perfect if you are planning to cook together with your kids.

Honey Bread

Baking bread is a great activity, and your children are going to have much fun doing it. If they want to feel like real chefs, you can let them measure, scoop and knead. They can do this and help you make bread with the taste of honey. For this you’ll need flour, milk, butter, honey, yeast and salt. It’s pretty easy to make. You mix honey, melted butter and salt in a bowl of warmed milk. When you add flour you will get the dough which is ready for kneading. This is the kids’ favorite part. They can squeeze it, pull it and punch it as much as they want. You have to let it rise for 20 minutes and then it’s ready for baking (30-35 minutes).

Creamy Mac ‘n’ Cheese

Mac ‘n’ cheese is one of the favorite foods among children. It tastes great plus it can be fun for them to play with macaroni while you are cooking. They will like it even more if you make it with milk. This is why it’s called creamy mac ‘n’ cheese. The only three things you need are macaroni, cheese and milk. Instead of boiling macaroni in hot water, you should cook them in milk. In the end you just add cheese and the whole meal is done. Kids like the macaroni more when they are creamy and it will be more interesting for them to make it that way.

Cookie Cutter Fruit Salad

Cutting fruit with a cookie cutter can be a great way to make your children eat healthier food. A great way to do this is to find interesting cookie cutters (shaped like stars, hearts, moons etc.) and cut fruits with them. You’ll also want to mix fruits of different colors in order to get a beautiful fruit salad. Make these interesting shapes out of watermelon and add some blueberries to it. So, not only that your fruit salad will taste great but it will also look beautiful. Your children can use the cookie cutter and add their favorite fruits to the salad.

Peanut Butter Banana Quesadillas

Kids will love the taste of peanut butter, chocolate and banana all mixed together. Plus, the fact that it comes wrapped up in tortilla will make it more interesting for them. You can spread the peanut butter over it and cut the chocolate and the banana. Give the pieces you cut to your children and let them arrange it all over the tortilla. You can fold the tortilla together and the only thing left to do is to heat it until it’s golden and crispy on both sides.

Taco Pizza

This is also going to be one of your kids’ favorite meals. It has absolutely everything you need: veggies, yummy taco flavor and it is a kind of pizza. The first thing you’ll need to do is make the dough (again, here you can utilize the help of your children). You can make it in any shape and size, depending on the cookware you are using. You can get some of the best cookware at Matchbox. Once the dough is ready you should put it in the oven for 10 minutes and only then add brown ground beef and vegetables you are planning to use. Put it back in the oven for 5-7 more minutes and your Taco Pizza is finished. Your kids can also arrange the vegetables on the dough however they want (you can make shapes with beef pieces and ketchup).

Your children will enjoy making these meals as much as eating them. You can always try to alter the recipe and add you children’s favorite food. Don’t be afraid to experiment and think of your own meals you can make with your children.
