A great way to get kids interested in food, especially more nutritious food, is for them to help in the kitchen. My little guy loves helping me. His favourite kitchen duties are chopping up veg, stirring the pot, mixing pancake batter and doing the washing up (yes, really!).
Here are a few gift ideas to help instil a love of cooking in the kids in your life.
P.S. Check out my gift guide for the foodie in your life and for the person that needs a little self-care.
Little Cooks Co Healthy Cooking Kit. These cooking kits for kids are a lovely way to get them in the kitchen and trying out new flavours. Every month, there’s a new healthy snack recipe, all the dry organic ingredients to make it and a kid friendly family dinner recipe too! Get 25% of your first kit by using BOX1 at checkout.
Kuhn Rikon Knife Set. These knives are an amazing and safe way to teach your kids knife skills. They’re sharp enough that they can cut through softer vegetables without harming little fingers if they slip.
Little Helper Fun Pod Kitchen Stool. I wish I had one of these when my son was younger. It’s a nice way for kids to reach the same height as the kitchen counter and for you to feel secure that they’re not going to fall off or accidentally touch a hot pot or pan.
Personalised apron. Make them feel like a top chef with their own personalised apron.
Or a personalised wooden spoon set. How cute is this!
Lunchbots Stainless Steel Bento Box. These are a great way for your kids to take their packed lunch to school and are durable enough to last being thrown around in the school backpack. We have one and it’s so nice for J to have a few easy options in one place for his lunch.
Nadiya’s Bake Me A Festive Story. This is a lovely gift for an older child, with lots of easy to make cookies and cakes.
Leiths Cooking Course For Teenagers. If you have teenagers or nearly teenagers, a cooking course is a lovely way to help them gain a little independence and learn how to cook a few meals. A great life skill, especially when they go to university and need to fend for themselves!
