Let’s be honest, the words easy and kids, just don’t go together when it comes to the kitchen!

When it comes to yet another meal time the temptation to throw something together quickly can be strong, but there is a way to include your children in food prep and even have fun doing it. Most parents constantly seek advice on what to do for fun with their children, and the great news is that you can kill two birds with one stone!
Making food with your children can be fun, and satisfying their endlessly hungry tummies at the same time and you will get you extra “brownie” points. Plus, all parents want a healthy, happy child – and it really is possible to feed your little ones well, with foods that they will enjoy. Getting them involved will make them more likely to try new foods too. They will be picking up valuable life skills to boot.
You may find that your children actually enjoy cooking with you more than watching television or playing video games. The opportunity to enjoy your full attention (read: without a smart phone) will be very special to them.
So onto the recipes! The internet is crawling with amazing ideas to create foods that looks fun and taste delicious. Here we share some of the best that we came across.
