 Kids in the Kitchen is a new weekly series to showcase all the ways kids can be involved in meal planning, shopping, preparing and even cooking. Each week we ask you to share your stories, pictures and recipes that involve your kids in the kitchen.

Did you know that kids are more likely to eat new foods if they are involved in the preparation. Teaching them how to cook and move their way around the kitchen are skills your children will use for a lifetime. These skills foster independence, self reliance and self-confidence. Kids in the Kitchen is about more than just letting kids mix up cake batter or cookie dough; let them explore by measuring, chopping, tasting new flavors and cooking techniques.

Linky Rules

1.  Link up only your kid friendly recipes, stories, pictures or cooking lessons here.(No Etsy stores or giveaways please).

2.  Only link directly to a specific post not your homepage.

3. Please add a Kids in the Kitchen button or link on your site or blog post or share through social media so readers know you are participating. (buttons coming)

4.  Click through and comment, pin or share with other participants.  We love to share inspiration and ideas with each other, don’t link and run.

5. Follow the hosts of this feature, Paula at Frosted FingersSara at Sensibly Sara and me, Melinda at LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too

All links will be shared on all the host’s weekly posts, Paula at Frosted FingersSara at Sensibly Sara and me, Melinda at LookWhatMomFound…and Dad too!

I look forward to seeing you Friday, February 8, 2013 and every Friday after that.

  1. wow! what a great idea! I’d love to do something like that so I will bookmark this!

    • do anything; create a recipe, introduce a new food or take a pic of family dinner. ANYTHING counts as long as we’re spending time with the kids in the kitchen

  2. This is really cute. Out of all my kids, my son loves to cook the most. He is always willing to help. He likes coming up with “recipes” too. But usually they involve putting mac -n- cheese on top of grilled cheese. But at least he’s thinking. It will be interesting to see what other kids enjoy doing.

    Great idea!!! my boys like to fight over who’s helping mommy in the kitchen im always looking for ways to involve them in the kitchen

    • even if you don’t have a blog(not sure if you do) link up to a Facebook post talking about the experience of kids in the kitchen

  4. My son loooooooves to help with the cooking! He’s not too keen on the shopping and the cleanup, but he gets involved there as well. What a great idea to have this as a linkup. I’ll be popping by on Fridays starting the 8th! 🙂

  5. What a great idea! Can’t wait to see what you guys all come up with!
