Cooking with Kids

Eating and cooking is one of the pleasures that we are all enjoying during lockdown. Cooking with the kids is great from many angles - they'll learn weighing and measuring, reading and following instructions, not to mention what fun it is to create something delicious (and wash up afterwards too!)

Here are a few of our faves to keep little chefs entertained.

FREE ONLINE COURSES

Jasmine (age 11) and her friend Bella (age 9) have really enjoyed doing some online cookery (albeit in separate houses) with The Avenue Cookery School. They made some delicious flapjacks which we all enjoyed. At the moment they are doing one everyday at 17:30 with simple dishes, such as making a pesto sauce. Just log into Instagram and you can watch their live streamed cook-along @AvenueCookery

HEALTHY RECIPE BOOK

This gorgeous recipe book arrived at my house just before lockdown and we've tried out a number of Justine Murphy's recipes. The mumuybueno Cookbook contains 160 recipes which are all healthy, easy to make and refined sugar-free. My youngest is obsessed with hummus so we decided to make some and it didn't disappoint! We made beetroot hummus too and even some flatbreads which were much easier to pull off than we had thought, and so much nicer than bought ones. Available on amazon.co.uk

FUN FRUIT & VEG

Little ones will love making bugs and butterflies out of the simplest of snacks. Plus there is no need to use any heat whatsoever. Get creative with a rainbow selection of fruit and vegetables plus some cream cheese and/or nut butter to decorate. Find the recipe and further inspiration at Naturespath.com

Includes - a rolling pin, spatula, pasty brush, spoon and cutting board which can features the words "Baked with love by" - just add their name to personalise.
