Cooking with kids
While the kids might be happy now that the schools are closed, you might have already started climbing the walls. During this time of social distancing, self-isolation and working from home, it’s important to keep them occupied. And since you’re now going to have to cook for your little darlings twice a day, you could start by getting them involved in the kitchen. It’ll be fun for them and you can even combine it with their lessons to make sure they are learning at the same time.
Teaching kids about food
An appreciation of food and where it comes from is key to kids taking not just an interest in their health but also in their environment and the impact we all have on it every day. Instead of seeing this as a period of crisis, why not take the opportunity to raise kids’ awareness of their diet and what they eat?
What do you cook with kids?
Kids love baking and getting their hands busy mixing up flour is a fairly safe activity (it might take a little cleaning up afterwards though). Making dough for pizza is simple and most kids from about age five should be able to do it.
Our simple recipe for Margherita Pizza will keep little hands busy for a while and you can use that time to prep some veg. Then let them choose their toppings and you’re ready to pop them in the oven (the pizzas, not the kids).
