Recipes for Kids

Getting the kids in the kitchen is not only great fun, but it’s also a great learning experience for little ones.

Here you’ll find lots of simple recipes for kids to cook, as well as tips for cooking with toddlers and young kids. 

The lowdown on cooking with kids

Cooking with toddlers is messy, but part of the fun is playing with sticky food and getting elbow-deep in flour. Embrace this but prepare for the mess by donning aprons and clearing away appliances from the surfaces before you get started. 

There are lots of things to cook with children that are suitable, safe and fun. Encourage toddlers to do the stirring and decorating, while older kids can take responsibility for the measuring and pouring. Remember to keep cutting and using hot utensils reserved for adults only.

Want to bring an important lesson into your cooking experiences with kids? Use healthy ingredients in your recipes for kids to cook and show little ones how to prepare them. This is one easy way to encourage kids healthy eating and you’ll find plenty of healthy things to cook with children at OMO.

When cooking with toddlers or young children, make sure they are familiarised with good practices of health and safety from the very start. Encourage them to wash their hands before, during and after cooking, and teach them to be extra careful around potential hazards like hot ovens, sharp knives, open flames or boiling water. Remember: healthy kitchen, healthy child.
