Foods that are fun for kids to make are simplified recipes such as mini-pizza pockets and chicken and fruit kebabs. Other enjoyable cooking ideas for kids are creative and healthy snack recipes such as pear penguins, bug bite sandwiches and banana caterpillars.
Kid-friendly recipes must be simple and allow young cooks to get hands-on experience. When it comes to cooking mini pizza pockets, for instance, kids can help mix the egg and batter, flatten biscuits and use a fork to seal the biscuits. Crafty and nutritious snack recipes that don't require cooking are a great way for kids to have fun while learning the importance of healthy eating. Pear penguins, for example, basically require kids to turn a pear into a chocolate-covered penguin using mini chocolate chips, melted chocolate and a pastry brush.
