    Default Kids Cooking

    The other thread about kids getting their own breaki got me thinking about kids cooking alone in the kitchen.

    What age are your kids?

    Do they cook breaki/lunch/dinner?

    What do they cook?

    DS is 9, and he's just started cooking simple meals. 2 min noodles, eggs with soldiers. I'd love some more simple meal ideas though.

    My kids have always been around when I cook and have always been involved in one way or another. They're 3, nearly 7 and 9 and they regularly:
    Make the salad for dinner
    Chop veggies
    Cook/ turn meat and sausages
    Crumb chicken pieces for "nuggets"
    Make marinades
    Make meatballs - they love getting their hands dirty!
    Boil eggs and make toast soldiers
    Make pizzas/pizza scrolls
    Make sweet stuff - scones, biscuits, chocolate cake, pikelets etc....

    My oldest is 9 years old.

    She can make a salad for the family, she can make falafels, chop up vegies to be steamed, make her own lunch (salad/tuna - if she wants a toastie she preps it and I toast it for her). She can prepare fish for grilling purposes.

    And then she can do things like ice cupcakes, help roll biscuits etc.

    I can't think of anything else at the moment. I'm wary of her using the stove/oven so when she's keen to cook I get her to help with the non oven/stove stuff. She also has allergies so some things she just can't touch.
