While cooking with toddlers can be very tasking except you add recipes that can make cooking fun for them; recipes that involve stirring.
Because cooking involves all five senses, the sensory input of the toddlers is helped and developed when they get involved in cooking. But there are certain points to note before you allow your toddler get into the kitchen with you ready to whip and mix all the mixable.
Make sure your toddler is not tired or exhausted. Choose a time when he is active. In the morning or after naptime would be fine.
- Don’t pick difficult or time-consuming recipes.
- Measure out all the ingredients separately and have them ready for your toddler to mix in a bowl.
- Make sure there is mixing and stirring in the cooking routine because those are their favorite aspect of cooking
- Have your toddler clean the mess he would sure create after the mixing process and you can be certain he would love to do that.
