Hello! No more missing out, here at Kids Kitchen we are coming to you! In our Kids Kitchen Online Session we want to make sure each family has the opportunity to join in, feel included, have fun and cook great food together with one of our pressure free cooking activities wherever you are, whatever your circumstances. Meet other parents from the comfort of your own home, explore skills, tastes and ideas – Welcome Everyone!
What we have planned is as much for the grown-ups as it is the kids!
- 45 minute session of fun for the kids with a simple food based sensory play activity
- We can chat over a hot cuppa- about food, recipes or anything else that takes our fancy – just like a normal playgroup!
- There’s a full-blown recipe that will see you through to lunch if you’re feeling adventurous (no pressure!)
Our session leaders will be there to facilitate the activity and discussion and to answer your questions and share some tips and ideas.
This week we will be showing you how to get your kids safely helping with the chopping!
Being happy and comfortable with a wide range of different vegetables is one of the best ways to encourage healthy eating – and getting hands on with helping prepare them is a great way to get them interested! As well as chopping, we will be talking about colours, shapes and textures, and of course taste! A real all round learning experience for everyone!
Get your little one set up with a range of different veg – this week we’ll be using a few root veggies to make a Moroccan stew (click for ingredients) so you will need a sharp knife to help cut them into smaller pieces, plus a chopping board and child safe knife – we really rate the ones in our Kids Kitchen Essentials Pack which you can buy here, but a regular table knife is fine too.
Most kids will sample the veg as they go along, but you could also turn it into other yummy meals such as our delicious Couscous Volcanoes recipe – watch and cook along with our video or our Shepherdess Pie recipe and video here.
Roll on Thursday – it’s going to be scrumptious!
