What's more tempting than the aroma of fresh baking?
what's more satisfying than seeing homemade jam tarts or a cake in the tin?
Geoff -Dad in the House - gives the following tips:
Always supervise young kids in the kitchen.
Always teach your kids to wash hands before cooking and eating.
Collect items you need before calling young kids to get involved.
Don't let kids taste food with raw eggs in because of salmonella risks.
Teach your kids about heat and knives and cheese graters.
Get kids to use oven gloves if picking up hot pans(older kids)
Mop up spills to prevent accidents.
If you are busy in the kitchen why not let your kids play with empty pots, pans and wooden spoons. They could even make pretend dinner with playdoh at the table.
If your child has disabilities take even more care.
Our youngest daughter is unable to sense heat until she touches the source. she needs extra supervison and at eight still needs to be kept away from hot ovens hobs.

The kids baking recipes are loved and the eating even more so (by them anyway).
It's good to experience those ooh's and ahh's of delight (is it delight?),as the relatives sample the first fruits of the kids baking recipes experiences.
They try so hard to enjoy those slightly salty biscuits, and nearly jamless(cos its all spilled out on the tray) jam tarts.
We've loved eating cheese sauces tasting of flour, fruit cheesecakes that haven't set, and cakes that haven't risen.
What we have really enjoyed is the kids baking recipe successes as they have experimented.
On saturday mornings the kids make bread with their dad, it's great family bonding time.
Not only do the kids love doing it, the house smells lovely and we can all enjoy eating it.
As our kids have got older the older kids teach the younger kids.
They duplicate their skills into the younger kids as they do baking together.
We hope you enjoy baking with kids.
