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
Cook/ turn meat and sausages
Crumb chicken pieces for "nuggets"
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.
