Are you worried that your child may get hurt in the kitchen? Will they accidentally set the barbecue on fire? Or just how much of a mess will they make? Not fond of the idea that food could be wasted? While some parents may find the idea of cooking with their children or letting their children take over the whole task of cooking daunting, with a few tips and age appropriate tasks, this can become an enjoyable and delicious activity for the whole family.
And summer is the perfect time to “get cooking” with your child(ren) and let them try out new skills. Divide up the meal preparation, letting them make a salad or side dish. For older children, teach them how to “fire up the BBQ” and get grilling. See what cool, refreshing summer dessert they can create.
