Cooking with toddlers
- Community Posts
One of the best ways to get your toddler to love healthy food is to get him involved in the kitchen.
Watch this video to find out some ways your toddler can help when you’re preparing food.
It’s important to remember that a toddler is much more likely to eat what you serve if he has helped make it. So get your toddler involved in preparing food.
Here are 4 ways you can get your toddler to help out with preparing food (always with an adult supervising, of course):
- Give him a wooden spoon and let him stir whatever you’re making. Just make sure it’s something cool on the bench, not on the stove.
- Give him his own apron so he feels like one of the chefs.
- Wash your hands together so he learns about food and cleanliness.
- And let him make some decisions - should we put jam on the toast today or honey? Curly pasta or tubes? Helping with choices lets your toddler feel included - and important.
It might be a bit messy, but it will most certainly be fun!
