KidsAndCooking was formed to offer a unique reference point on encouraging kids in the kitchen.

We want this site to be the first place you visit when you’re looking for any information about kids and cooking. We aim to produce clear informative articles in a simple format that will answer your questions, offer suggestions and make cooking with and for kids fun and easy.

We know how exciting it can be when a child successfully manages to bake a cake or prepare a simple lunch for the first time. We also know how hair-raisingly embarrassing it can be when a child refuses to eat anything from a restaurant’s menu and demands fish fingers and alphabetti spaghetti. With this in mind we offer recipes and practical advice on everything including: eating out; filling lunch boxes; coping with allergies; catering for a party; food for teenagers and simple but tasty food for younger kids.
