Toddlers in the Kitchen

Food makes my heart sing and Kitchen is my happy place. I also have my food blog here. I learnt to cook after I got married and became a regular cook once my little one turned 6 months old. We were following baby led weaning and since then I always cooked in front of an audience translation: little boy.

I did not have any help at that point in time and little one was always hanging around in the background watching me cook from a distance.

So yours truly decided to involve him in the kitchen and help me out. He cannot help me out a-z in the kitchen but there are some pretty awesome ways we could work together in harmony.

And yeah, there is loads of mess to clear later and a heavy sink to be cleaned- but the fun makes up to it.

This week we did not have any shelf activities, we instead focused only on our cooking and baking.
Check out my baking post here 🙂

I do have a few other kitchen photos clicked, and have more lined up so I could post them together. So keep watching this space for more uploaded pictures 🙂

Isn’t cooking together a great way to bond? A little mess would do no harm right?

And let them also taste thereby they feel accomplished and part of the whole cooking experience.

Please do all this in an adult supervision and stay away from any allergy causes if your child has any.
