The Importance Of Cooking With Your Children


I am in no way trying to say my children’s diets are perfect, nor am I going to profess to be the greatest cook in the world but I am a huge advocate of cooking & baking with your kids. Charley may only be 2 years old but she is a dab hand at pouring ingredients into a bowl and her whisking skills would put Gordon Ramsey to shame. With Harry now 5 years old I can teach him the basics of healthy V treat ( we don’t call it bad ) food. We have a diet full of fruit and vegetables but I also do not cut out all the ‘treat’ food. I believe in the saying everything in moderation. Since we have moved into our lovely new house and I had my beautiful new worktop space fitted by Worktop Express , cooking with the kids has become a regular occurrence. We have stuck to very simple dishes like homemade pasta sauces, full of vegetables and brimming with lovely vitamins. We bake wonky cupcakes ( must keep trying ) that even though they are a ‘treat’ food gives Harry & Charley the chance to be creative and design their own toppings. The simplest and most fun dish that we make time & time again is Pitta Pizzas. A fraction of the calories of a standard pizza and takes less than 10 minutes to make. So have a go !! Toppings can be changed to your kid’s taste but I a sure you once you have done this, your Mummy & Me cooking adventures will be well underway.

What you will need (per person )

How to make – 

This recipe works for anyone looking for a low-calorie treat, fussy eater children, weaning baby’s (10mths+), basically anyone who loves a pizza.

Stick an old blanket down, get the kid’s teddy bears out and you have an instant teddy bears picnic that will keep them quiet for at least 1/2 hour. The Joy !!!
