    Tip: Get them involved in the kitchen as early as possible. My boys loved just standing on a sturdy chair and watching when they were around 16-18 months old. My 3.5 year old now does a great job helping me measure and mix.

    My tip for today is bring your kids into the kitchen early and often. I don’t remember being in the kitchen at all growing up and it took me a really long time to have any confidence about cooking. I also never got to learn any of my grandma’s wonderful recipes, which of course were not written down and are now lost forever.

    My tip for today is buying those toddler-sized cooking shears so you can let your kid cut some small things while preparing a meal (I first saw these on the Rachael Ray show when she was cooking with her niece). My son is just learning to use scissors but he can use these to cut the tops off strawberries or the ends off asparagus, etc.

    My son is only 3 but he LOVES helping in the kitchen. I wanted one of those super expensive specialty ladders for him to stand on, but I can’t justify the cost. But if you’re rich, I say get one! They look like they make cooking with a toddler so much easier (and safer). My son loves to bake (serious sweet tooth) so he always helps when I make banana bread or muffins or cookies. My best tip is don’t be afraid to let your kid get dirty. I find that when my son gets to be super hands on, he is more likely to eat whatever we’ve made together.

    Kids love to cook. Take the time to teach them about food, nutrition and the science behind food. Knowledge is a powerful thing, and what a great time to teach them when they are having fun cooking.

    My kids love having things they can touch and hold and do. They love to roll and cut out cookies cookies and measure out ingredients. I let them smell the spices we use and then see if they can taste them in the finished product. We also love to take the treats we’ve made to neighbors and friends.
